An epic suffused with metaphysical musing and sexual politics...

This is the kind of movie you want to talk about afterward.

What it perhaps lacks in content, the film more than makes up for in its stunning design and accesible, humorous approach.

Orlando provides exciting, wonderfully witty entertainment with glorious settings and costumes and Tilda Swinton's sock performance in the title role.
