Produced by Blueprint Pictures’ Laurence Mark, Pete Czernin and Graham Broadbent, with 3000 Pictures’ Marisa Paiva and Nikki Cooper serving as executive producers, the film began filming in North Wales in late 2021. “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” is the second feature film by Clermont-Tonnerre, an actor now qualified as a director.
Although set in the 1920s, there are reasons why this story is still relevant in the present day. Regarding the subject of the film and its concern to faithfully represent loving intimacy and women’s right to sexual liberation, Clermont-Tonnerre told Vogue: “The idea of a free woman is always outrageous. Just look what happened with Roe v. Wade, and what is currently happening in Iran.This book chronicles a woman’s journey to empowerment, control of her body, possession of her sexuality, and possession of her life. My goal was to highlight her point of view and give the audience a visceral experience of a woman experiencing pleasure. She had to feel approachable.”
The latest adaptation of “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” hits theaters on November 25. The film will be available to stream on Netflix on December 2.
