THE FRENCH LIEUTENANT'S WOMAN (1981) C widescreen 123m dir: Karel Reisz

w/Meryl Streep, Jeremy Irons, Leo McKern, Hilton McRae

Adaptation of John Fowles' popular novel, written by Harold Pinter. Interesting attempt to tell the story of an enigmatic, haunting woman in England in the last century, with modern overtones. It's now about a film company shooting a movie, with the stars having an affair at the same time they are portraying the period characters. Stimulating, generally compelling.
