Movie Summary

Director:
Sally Potter
Released:
1993
Rating:
PG-13
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.

Metacritic Score

  • 88

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Directed with sly grace and quiet elegance by Sally Potter, it is not about a story or a plot, but about a vision of human existence.

  • 88

    Slant Magazine

    Rarely have source material, director, and leading actress been more in alignment than in Orlando.

  • 75

    Chicago Tribune

    What it lacks in coherence it makes up for in sheer spectacle.
