The French Lieutenant's Woman

directed by Karel Reisz
United Kingdom, 1981


With an ingenious script by the Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter, British New Wave trailblazer Karel Reisz transforms John Fowles’s tale of scandalous romance into an arresting, hugely entertaining movie about cinema, in a beguiling, intellectually nimble feat of filmmaking.
