ORLANDO, A film by Sally Potter, PG-13, 93min.
For this first time in 17 years, Sally Potter's
classic Orlando can be seen on the big screen in a new digitally re-mastered version. Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton) is Orlando, the melancholy, fiercely independent, and always humanistic poet whose story
begins when Queen Elizabeth I—wonderfully played by Quentin Crisp—takes a shine to the beautiful boy. There are several amazing things about Orlando, not the least of which is that he is immortal, has the tendency to slip into deathlike
sleeps for long periods of time and, halfway through the 18th century, changes into a woman. Based on the novel by Virginia Woolf, the author's wit is deftly matched by director Sally Potter's translation of it to the screen.
