YAH19 Vita and Virgina

The affair and the friendship of authors Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West — both uncompromising in their insistence to live and create to the fullest — constitutes one of the most fascinating relationships in literary history.

Socialite Vita (Gemma Arterton) and literary icon Virginia (Elizabeth Debicki) run in different circles in 1920s London. When the two cross paths, the magnetic Vita decides the beguiling, stubborn and gifted Virginia will be her next conquest, no matter the cost. Vita and Virginia forge an unconventional affair, set against the backdrop of their own strikingly contemporary marriages; an affair that inspires one of Virginia’s most iconic novels, ‘Orlando’.
