Starring Tilda Swinton in her most enigmatic roll as Orlando; landed gentry of the 1600s, to whom Queen Elisabeth I (played by Quentin Crisp) instructs, "Do not fade. Do not wither. Do not grow old.". Orlando survives 400 more years changing nothing but his/her sex. This beautifully told adaptation of the Virginia Woolf novel by the same name tenderly questions gender, love, life, art, poetry, nationalism and politics of the self. We challenge you not to shed a tear to Jimmy Somerville’s soundtrack or Swinton’s incredible, gender-fluid performance.
