An astounding array of talent came together for the big-screen adaptation of John Fowless novel The French Lieutenants Woman, a postmodern masterpiece that had been considered unfilmable. With an ingenious script by the Nobel Prizewinning playwright Harold Pinter (Betrayal), British New Wave trailblazer Karel Reisz (Saturday Night and Sunday Morning) transforms Fowless tale of scandalous romance into an arresting, hugely entertaining movie about cinema. In Pinters reimagining, Jeremy Irons (Dead Ringers) and Meryl Streep (Sophies Choice) star in parallel narratives, as a Victorian-era gentleman and the social outcast he risks everything to love, and as the contemporary actors cast in those roles and immersed in their own forbidden affair. The FrenchLieutenants Woman, shot by the consummate cinematographer Freddie Francis (Glory) and scored by the venerated composer and conductor Carl Davis, is a beguiling, intellectually nimble feat of filmmaking, starring a pair of legendary actors in early leading roles.
