Ken Russell cast the UK’s best acting talents in his visually stunning 1969 adaptation of D. H. Lawrence’s novel: Glenda Jackson, Alan Bates, and Oliver Reed. Although the action is transposed from the late nineteenth century to after World War I, many points of Lawrence’s novel are preserved, with the two couples formed by sisters Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen and their male companions absorbed in contemporary questions of sexual politics and class relations. The film’s original cinematographer, Billy Williams, supervised this new restoration, highlighting the beauty of the compositions, the English countryside, and later on, the vivid radiance of the Swiss Alps. “This restoration will restore Russell to his rightful place in the pantheon of top British directors” — Jeff Robson. (Ken Russell, 1969, 131 minutes)
