The book was banned in his country

The novel is the story of the meeting of Lady Chatterley and Olivier Mellors, of a difficult taming, of a slow awakening to sensuality for her, of a long return to life for him… or how the love is one with the experience of transformation. Namely that D.H. Lawrence’s novel was censored at the time of its release because it spoke about sexuality frankly and was considered pornographic because it addresses sexual freedom and female pleasure. The book published in 1928, was immediately banned in his country and was only authorized in 1960!
Fans of Lady Chatterley’s Lover love the film primarily for its sincerity and vulnerability. De Clermont-Tonnerre managed to tell an original and deep love story despite the taboos and stereotypes associated with romance. Fans also liked that the film tackled the theme of sexual freedom and the importance of physical connection, which is rarely addressed in modern films.
Emma Corrin, who starred as Connie Reid in the film, became an international sensation playing Lady Diana Spencer in the Netflix TV series The Crown.
