Lady Chatterley's Lover

Synopsis: In 1913 Connie Reid marries wealthy Nottingham colliery owner Sir Clifford Chatterley but he returns from the Great War disabled and in a wheelchair. Connie is loyal but begins to feel alienated as he engages a nurse, Mrs Bolton, to bathe him and excludes her from pit business. Despite his desire for an heir his impotency results in a lack of sexual activity and Connie is drawn to handsome Oliver Mellors, the plain-spoken former miner her husband has engaged as his game-keeper and who represents the passion she craves. They embark upon a physical affair in Oliver's cottage but are discovered and betrayed by Mrs Bolton. Connie, now carrying Oliver's child, must choose between a pampered but joyless existence with her husband or an uncertain future with the man she has come to love.

Get what you want in your youth.

Nothing is so bad for a woman

getting on in years...

...than the thought that she's missed.

Good night, dear.

I'm leaving early in the morning,

so I shan't see you again.

There's nothing so sad or futile... an elderly woman

possessed by vain regrets.

I am possessed.

Connie, I need to talk to you.

Sit down a moment.

You know, you're the worst loser,

in a sense.

- Darling.

- I depend on you, live on you.

But you're denied

a serious part of life.

The fact you are denied, it may work

inside your subconscious, harming you.

But you know I need you

as much as you need me.

- You did want me before, didn't you?

- Of course.

I know, and it's bitter.

You see, I don't want you to feel

you've brought me a sacrifice.

Connie, I must tell you this.

If ever there's a man...

...who you absolutely want

to make love to you...

...take him.

Have a lover if you want to.

Look, a kestrel.

Don't ever forget I love you.

- Hey, come on here.

- Come here, girl.

Come on up. Come on up.

- I'm sorry about the dog, sir.

- Don't worry, she's a good girl.

Look, will you give me a push

back to the house?

- Milady.

- Hello.

All right, pull.

Thank you, Mellors.

Thank you, Field.


Do you need some help?

- No, nearly done now.

- How did we do last year?

Not bad, considering.

Even the pheasants sold quite well.

What about the mine?

Shouldn't you open it again?

- I heard that coal...

- Not the right time.

Not the right time at all.


It's all right, darling. Don't worry.

I'm sick and tired

of these records, darling.

- Could you play me something?

- What would you like me to play?

Whatever you like. You know the one.

The one you play so well.

All right, then.
