BBC One is about to screen its adaptation of the classic 20th century novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover and the first glimpse, a short 40-second teaser trailer for the tele-movie, has been released.
The film stars Holliday Grainger in the role of the titular Lady Chatterley. She is no stranger to a period drama having been in productions of Jane Eyre, Bonnie and Clyde, The Borgias and as well as in Disney’s huge hit Cinderella. Richard Madden plays her lover in this Jed Mercurio adaptation. Madden was also in Cinderella as the erstwhile Prince, but is most known to television audiences as ill-fated Robb Stark in Game of Thrones.
Lady Chatterley’s Lover tells the story of Lady Constance Chatterley, who marries the aristocratic Sir Clifford Chatterley. When Sir Clifford is handicapped in the First World War, things are made very difficult for the unhappy bride. When the couple move to his family’s estate, Constance meets their tough-yet-quiet groundskeeper, Oliver Mellors. Soon, she discovers that the source of her unhappiness is from not being fulfilled in love, and finds herself in a passionate affair with Mellors, whereupon she has a sexual awakening that will change her thoughts forever.
The production company Hartswood Films have promised that this version will be just as raunchy as the source material with producer Serena Cullen saying that they have done the sex scenes to the very limits of what can be show non mainstream television.
The BBC Once adaption also stars Happey Valley’s James Norton and is schedule to air on BBC ONe in September
