Orlando (1992) short review

A beautiful film that suffers a bit from a story that doesn’t translate terribly well to film. The story spans four centuries, from the Elizabethan era to the present day. The costumes are absolutely breathtaking — I would happily kill for the title character’s white sack-back gown with huuuuuge paniers.
