Synopsis

The affair and the friendship of authors Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West — both uncompromising in their insistence to live, love, and create to the fullest — constitutes one of the most fascinating relationships in literary history.

The year is 1922. Though happily married, Vita (Gemma Arterton, Their Finest BFF16) is as notorious for her dalliances with women and subversive attitudes toward gender as she is famous for her aristocratic pedigree and writerly success. Virginia (Elizabeth Debicki, The Night Manager), meanwhile, is a celebrated writer, publisher, and member of the Bloomsbury Group, already revolutionising literature. When Vita receives an invitation to Bloomsbury, she is elated at the thought of meeting the enigmatic Woolf.

Between the concern of their husbands, families, and mutual friends – their romance is bound to be tumultuous. Yet tumult can fuel creativity: Vita’s singular persona will eventually be channelled into one of Virginia’s greatest works, ‘Orlando.’ Based on Sackville-West and Woolf’s personal correspondence and co-scripted by esteemed stage and screen veteran Dame Eileen Atkins (Tea with the Dames 2018, Gosford Park 2001), Vita & Virginia is bold, sensuous, and smart, and will make you swoon.
