The French Lieutenant's Woman
Karel Reisz / United Kingdom 1981 / 124 min. / 15 years / Blu-ray
Reisz's most popular work, thanks to the contribution of screenwriter Harold Pinter, manages a complex postmodern masterpiece inspired by John Fowles, as it transforms the Victorian romance by adding a parallel filmmaking narrative. The film, nominated for five Oscars, offered Meryl Streep her first leading role, as well as discovering Jeremy Irons.
