    The Virgin and the Gypsy is the enthralling film adaptation from the novella by D.H. Lawrence.

    Featuring brilliant performances from an all star cast including Honor Blackman, Joanna Schimkus, and Franco Nero , The Virgin and the Gypsy is the ultimate tale of a young girl's passion unleashed...
    It is the story of two sisters, daughters of an Anglican vicar, who return from overseas to a drab, lifeless vicarage in the post-war East Midlands. Their new home is dominated by a blind and selfish grandmother, and Yvette and Lucille risk being suffocated by the life they now lead at the Vicarage.

    Whilst on a trip with some friends, Yvette encounters a Gypsy and this meeting awakens a sexual curiosity in her she has not felt before. The Gypsy offers her an escape from the oppression she feels at home, but can she breakaway from her family's grasp?

    Special Features:
    An exclusive Evening with Honor Blackman and the film's Director, Christopher Miles. In front of an invited audience they recount the making of 'The Virgin and The Gypsy', and how its success changed their lives.
