When he returns home, six months after the conflict’s conclusion in 1918, he and Connie move to his family’s estate in Wragby in the Midlands. Like so many men, Clifford has suffered greatly, sustaining brutal injuries that mean he’s paralyzed from the waist down.

At first, Clifford faces his new life positively as he looks to write and even restore the woodlands in Wragby’s sprawling grounds. New staff are hired, including gamekeeper Oliver Mellors (Jack O’Connell), a former army lieutenant.

Yet as Connie expresses a desire for freedom, even to take a simple walk in Wragby, Clifford’s dependence on her grows, and his demeanor changes as he begins to treat her like a nursemaid.

Unable to fulfill her sexual needs, he suggests that Connie find someone to give her a baby whom they can raise as his own; she’s left shocked.

When Connie’s sister Hilda (Faye Marsay) visits to discover that her sibling’s health is failing from Clifford’s demanding care needs, she demands that Connie no longer be Clifford’s primary caregiver. They hire Mrs. Bolton (Joely Richardson), a widow who once cared for Clifford when he was young.

As Connie’s health is restored, she resumes her walks around Wragby. She soon befriends Mellors, learning that he is separate from his wife Bertha, who frequently had affairs behind his back when he was fighting during the war.

As Connie’s friendship with Mellors becomes more intense, feelings overflow, and they consummate their relationship, enjoying passionate sex. The gamekeeper suggests it would be damaging for Connie if others found out about the affair, but consumed by love and lust, she continues.

The cast for Lady Chatterley’s Lover includes Emma Corrin, Jack O’Connell, Matthew Duckett, and Joely Richardson. Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre directs from a script from David Magee.

The producers include Laurence Mark, Pete Czernin, and Graham Broadbent. It’s based on the novel by D.H. Lawrence, which was banned at the time of its publication.
