Pride on Screen: VITA & VIRGINIA
18/07/2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£5 – £7
At Vue Hull: BUY TICKETS
The fascinating true story about the love affair between socialite and popular author Vita Sackville-West and literary icon Virginia Woolf.
Based on a true story, VITA & VIRGINIA details the passionate relationship between literary trailblazer Virginia Woolf (Elizabeth Debicki), and enigmatic aristocrat Vita Sackville-West (Gemma Arterton). When their paths cross, the magnetic Vita decides the beguiling, stubborn and gifted Virginia will be her next conquest, no matter the cost. The ensuing relationship leads to the birth of Woolf’s bold, experimental novel – Orlando.
A daring celebration of an unconventional bond, and a vivid exploration of gender, sexuality, creativity and passion, VITA & VIRGINIA details the love story of two women – two writers – who smashed through social barriers to find solace in their forbidden connection.
Starring Elizabeth Debicki, Gemma Arterton, Rupert Penry-Jones, Isabella Rossellini
