A handsome Elizabethan courtier is told by his Virgin Queen "Do not fade, do not wither, do not grow old". So begins a sumptuous stroll across four centuries following the ageless progress of Orlando through various love affairs (and a mysterious sex change !) until she emerges penniless in Edwardian England. Sally Potter's adaptation of Virginia Woolf s shocking novel is a tour de force of breathtaking originality to rival anything by Peter Greenaway.

Average score 5.7
