The online streaming platform, Netflix has lately declared it is in the process of revising a prominent and raunchy novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover written by DH Lawrence. The novel investigates a noble woman’s affair with a gamekeeper in her husband’s mansion. The Netflix web drama will star none other than Emma Corrin aka Princess Diana in The Crown.
Lady Chatterley’s Lover will instantly take its spectators back to A-Level English Literature. DH Lawrence’s steamy novel, with its litany of f-words, c-words, and oh-so crude portrayals of s3x had long resulted in the debate because of its once-taboo subject topic.
DH Lawrence’s novel was first released in Florence in the year 1928. Almost four years later an expurgated edition of the novel was disclosed in England and over 30 years later, the full text was printed and sold in New York City, and 1960 in London when it was the topic of a profanity case over its usage of ‘risque’ sexual references.
The story portrays the life path of Constance Chatterley who is wedded to a rich landowner called Sir Clifford. Sir Clifford is immobilized from the waist down and frequently spends his time reading and on his grand estate, Wragby. Chatterley, who has run out of love and is lonely, soon discovers herself affectionate for the mansion’s gamekeeper called Oliver Mellors. Chatterley has to decide whether to break free from etiquette and find satisfaction with her lover or continue in a loveless relationship.
Lady Chatterley will be depicted by Emma Corrin. Jack O’Connell aka Cook from Skins will also be starred opposite Confession star Matthew Duckett in this Netflix web series.
The Netflix series has not yet started filming. So, its release date is not verified by its producers yet. However, according to Netflix, primary photography will start in the UK this autumn.
