It’s no coincidence that romantic films are more popular among women, giving rise to the term chick flicks. Should we discourage men from enjoying these films, or should we encourage men to embrace chick flicks like what we witnessed with Peter in Family Guy (Season 5, Episode 7, Chick Cancer)?

Directed by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre and written by Oscar-nominee David Magee, this Netflix film draws its inspiration from D. H. Lawrence’s classic novel. Emma Corrin and Jack O’Connell take the lead roles on the silver screen.

As her heart longs for more, she embarks on a passionate affair with a gamekeeper on their English estate, discovering desires and intimacies she never thought possible. Lady Chatterley’s realization that her heart and soul belong to this man leads her to challenge the conventions of her time and pursue happiness with her true love.

In this touching adaptation, Magee’s screenplay explores deeper themes from Lawrence’s novel, such as the scars of post-war trauma and the encroachment of industrialization. This cinematic journey is a captivating, emotionally charged, and immersive experience, closely aligning with Lawrence’s alternate title for the novel, Tenderness. It presents a gentle, moving love story that goes beyond mere sensuality, while still delving into the complexities of human desire and intimacy.
