Women in Love

Synopsis: The battle of the sexes and relationships among the elite of Britain's industrial Midlands in the 1920s. Gerald Crich and Rupert Berkin are best friends who fall in love with a pair of sisters Gudrun, a sculptress and Ursula Brangwen, a schoolteacher. Rupert marries Ursula, Gerald begins a love affair with Gudrun, and the foursome embarks upon a Swiss honeymoon. But the relationships take markedly different directions, as Russell explores the nature of commitment and love. Rupert and Ursula learn to give themselves to each other; the more withdrawn Gerald cannot, finally, connect with the demanding and challenging Gudrun.

Well, from these little red bits,

the nuts come.

If they receive pollen

from these...long danglers.

Little red flames.

Little red flames.

Aren't they beautiful?

I think they're so beautiful.

- Did you never notice them before?

- No. Never before.

Well, now you'll always see them.

Now I shall always see them.

Thank you...so much,

for showing me.

I think they're so beautiful.

Fancy her barging into your classroom

like that. What a liberty.

Oh, Hermione loves to dominate everyone.

- She'd like to dominate us, I think.

- Hm.

Oh, so that's why

she's invited us for the weekend.



It's Gerald Crich!

I know.


Gerald's in charge of the mines now.


Making all kinds of latest improvements.

They hate him for it. He takes them

all by the scruff of the neck

and fairly flings them along.

He'll have to die soon, when he's made

all the possible improvements

and there's nothing more to improve.

- He's got go, anyhow.

- Oh, certainly, he's got go.

The unfortunate thing is,

where does his go go to?

Dreadful. Dreadful.

All this drive and dissension.

If we could only realise that,

in the spirit, we're all one.

All equal, in the spirit.

All brothers, there.

The rest wouldn't matter.

There'd be no more of this carping...


and all this struggle for power.

Which destroys. Only destroys.

It's just the opposite, Hermione.

It's just the contrary.

The minute you begin to compare,

one man is seen to be far better

than another...

All the inequality in the world,

that you can imagine, is there by nature.

Well, I want every man to have

his fair share of the world's goods.

So that I can be rid of his importunity.

So that I can say to him,

"Now you've got what you want. You've
