Their experiences find male counterpoint in two figures that play more significant roles in the miniseries' second half: industrialist Gerald Crich (Joseph Mawle), a ladies' man, and school inspector Rupert Birkin (Rory Kinnear), a more sensitive type. After they return from World War I, Gerald sets his sights on Gudrun, who resists his advances; and Rupert pines for Ursula, except Hermione (Olivia Grant), a former lover, keeps getting in the way. If one union revolves around sex, the other does not (at times, Rupert seems more interested in men). Though the miniseries was made for television, Miranda Bowen directs Lawrence with as little inhibition as Ken Russell, whose theatrical version produced an instantly infamous naked wrestling scene between Oliver Reed and Alan Bates--and an Oscar for Glenda Jackson. If more restrained in some respects, this especially cinematic production makes miraculous use of its South African locations and features strong language and similarly explicit nudity involving the primary characters. Ursula sums things up best when she tells Gudrun, "Men cannot define you." --Kathleen C. Fennessy
Rather constrained by having to shoot in South Africa, the whole thing looks ridiculous.
I found the interpretation of the story rather bland even though the makers clearly are trying to update for our modern sensibilities.
As this is D.H. Lawrence, I don't think I have to warn you about the overt sexual content and nudity, but I will.
It did not meet my expectations. I will not pass it along to a family member; instead, I will donate it to charity.Published 5 months ago by Ann L. Regnier

It was very demoralizing and by no means worthy of anyone watching. I though it in the garbage after 5 minutes of watching it.Published 13 months ago by Bongo
Some years ago, I read this novel and now that I have it on DVD, I am able to relive the storyline. This storyline seems tame in view of more modern films. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Richard R. Hays
Not the kind of movie I like to see, is the story of a family who can not find happinessPublished 15 months ago by Maria A. Perez
I got this because I liked the original Ken Russell version of the movie and the D.H. Lawrence novel so much but found this wasn't as good as either even though it has an excellent... Read morePublished 15 months ago by Bahston
Although it is tame by today's standards, the banned DH Lawrence novels are portrayed with lovely cinematography and adept acting. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Kathleen Nulph
