Tilda Swinton, Billy Zane and Quentin Crisp star in this "hip, sexy and wickedly funny" film based on the gender-bending novel by Virginia Woolf. Swinton stars as Orlando, an English nobleman who defies the law of nature with surprising results. Immortal and highly imaginative, he undergoes a series of extraordinary transformations which humorously and hauntingly illustrate the eternal war between the sexes. Visually stunning and beautifully acted, ORLANDO is an intoxicating blend of romance, adventure and illusion.

It was absolutely captivating in how this journey was enacted. Tilda Swinton is otherworldly in how she develops this character. As a spectator you identify with the main character 'Orlando' as she morphs from male to female and anything inbetween and yet your still not quite sure. This made me feel uncomfortable in an insightful way. Just as you get comfortable with her persona and the era, it changes. I have watched this movie at least 20 times and each time I notice that everything about the story means something if you are truely listening and observing. No time for daydreaming or nodding off. If you are interested in what it is to be a male, a female and variants of these, how this is expressed or suppressed through sexuality, dress, mannerisms, social expectations, this movie will intrigue you. Even make you question your own ideas of yourself and societal expectations. A wonderful experience for reflecting on your way of being in the world.
'Orlando' could be used as a tool for opening discussions with any person or group who is questioning or wondering about thoughts and feelings they have had about feeling different and find out it may be perfectly normal to have these thoughts and ideas. A movie to expand the mind.
