Holliday Grainger, Richard Madden and James Norton star in Jed Mercurio's adaptation of DH Lawrence's legendary tale of love across class boundaries.
When Sir Clifford Chatterley returns to Wragby Hall in 1918 a broken man, his beautiful and spirited young wife Constance must adjust to a new life. Clifford, paralysed from the waist down after a horrific spinal injury on the battlefield, rejects any care or affection from his wife, leaving Constance lonely and isolated. Instead Clifford occupies his mind with the coal mines and his estate.
Soon Constance starts to take an interest in the estate's gamekeeper Oliver Mellors. Also recently returned from the war, Mellors has found refuge in his isolation in nature. Soon their mutual interest in each other and desire for human contact turns into a passionate affair. But the more involved they become, the greater the risk that someone will find out. As the scandal threatens to break, Constance must choose her own future - the intellectual life she has with Clifford, or the sensual and emotional life she has with Mellors.
