From Academy Award Winning screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Brazil, Empire of the Sun), The Romantic Englishwoman credibly explores the notion that a writer can manipulate the people in his life as deftly as he can manipulate the characters in his imagination.
The title character Elizabeth, (Two-time Academy Award Winner, Glenda Jackson, Hopscotch, Sunday Bloody Sunday) is the wife of Lewis (Two-time Academy Award Winner, Michael Caine, The Dark Knight, Hannah and Her Sisters), a novelist. At this point in his life, Lewis thinks in nothing but literary terms: Elizabeth is vacationing in Europe alone, ergo she must be having an affair. Half out of frustration, she confirms her husband's suspicions by romancing German drug dealer Thomas (Helmut Berger, The Godfather III, Iron). Things get even dicier when Lewis invites Thomas into his home, requesting his technical advice on a screenplay he is working on. Also starring Academy Award Nominee Kate Nelligan (The Prince of Tides, Premonition) and Michael Lonsdale (Of Gods and Men, Ronin). First time ever on Blu-ray!
One of The Top 10 Films of 1975. --Dave Kerr, The Chicago Reader

Glenda Jackson was fantastic and Michael Caine was good. Helmut Berger was good too, but his character was a bit sleazy. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Truthgirl
The film quality was not the best, but we put it down to bad storage of the original film. Thought that the acting was stilted, really weird chemistry as well. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Ant C
