The story of Dora Carrington (Emma Thompson), the beautiful but unhappy English painter, and her relationship with writer Lytton Strachey (Jonathan Pryce). In the years after World War One the couple experimented with their relationship by breaking all the taboos of old England, as they struggled to live as freely and honestly as was possible.

Rather than parade a potpourri of Bloomsbury notables, Hampton has decided to simply chart the tangled affair between artist and liberated woman, Dora Carrington, and eminent Edwardian, Lytton Strachey. Indeed, there is a slightly elliptical quality about the whole production, looks and glances being emphasized as much as the dialogue in his script. It is as though this English heritage film, with its sexual repression, country houses and country clothes, was feeling its way ever so reservedly towards the thunderous refinements of The Piano. Michael Nymans score helps it along.
