this was an important case
and this is an erotic film.
dh lawrence (and our heroes) are cleared of obscenity
so everyone can read and learn about their
sexploits. if ever there was a book
with rude bits, for the time, this was it.
(there is a great bit of vox pop documentary of embarrassed 1960s people queueing up to buy the book (3/6) after the case is finished.)
it outsold the bible for 18 months.
and helped to usher in the 60's.
the film is a courtroom drama that takes the point of view
of two jurors in the case.
two jurors who happen to fancy the pants off each other.
their steamy affair runs in parallel with the case,
fate brought them together,
and the book inspires and questions their lovemaking.
conclusion: like '12 angry men' for lovers. 8/10
