Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons stars as two separate pairs of lovers in this engaging and beautifully visualised film. Embraced by audiences and critics alike - and garnering five 1981 Academy Award nominations, including Best Actress (Streep) - `The Frech Lieutenant`s Woman` will forever remain one of the most literate, imaginative and stunning love stories ever to grace the screen.
As Mike and Anna, two film actors involved in a tumultuous affair, and Charles and Sarah, the star-crossed Victorian lovers, whom the actors portray, Streep and Irons are at their compelling best. Just as his character Charles`s reputation is ruined by the enigmatic Sarah, Mike finds he cannot accept the intangible affections of the wily Anna. The skilful interweaving of these two love stories - one period, one contemporary - yields a fascinating insight into the passion and mystery that can pull two people together... and just as easily tear them apart.
