Chanya Button’s VITA & VIRGINIA opens in cinemas across Ireland tomorrow Friday 5th July.

Based on a true story, VITA & VIRGINIA details the passionate relationship between literary trailblazer Virginia Woolf (Elizabeth Debicki), and enigmatic aristocrat Vita Sackville-West (Gemma Arterton).  The film tells the story of the birth of the novel their intoxicating encounters inspired; Woolf’s bold, experimental novel- Orlando.

When their paths cross, the magnetic Vita decides the beguiling, stubborn and gifted Virginia will be her next conquest, no matter the cost.  The film is a celebration of their unconventional bond; a vivid exploration of gender, sexuality, creativity and passion.

VITA & VIRGINIA is a love story, told in a contemporary style, about two women – two writers – who smashed through social barriers to find solace in their forbidden connection.

With a stellar supporting cast including Isabella Rosselini, Rupert Penry-Jones and Peter Ferdinando, the film was written and directed by Chanya Button and produced by Blinder Films and Mirror Productions.
