Overview

The later years of the life of author D.H. Lawrence are dramatized in this screen biography. Following the controversial reception of his novel The Rainbow, David Herbert Lawrence Ian McKellen and his wife Frieda Janet Suzman leave England for the U.S., where they hope that Lawrence's bold themes will be received in a more tolerant climate. Such is not the case, and the Lawrences travel first to Mexico, and then to Italy while David attempts to complete and then publish his best known and most controversial work, Lady Chatterley's Lover.

Muskett and Ava Gardner as Mabel Dodge Luhan.
