Storyline

Proud and determined, astride a beautiful white horse, Lady Godiva rides through the medieval streets to protest against the high taxes her husband, Leofric, Earl of Mercia, has levied against the people. Into modern day Oxford where Jemima, an attractive but quirky young school teacher, fierce and independent, sets out to resurrect her dead brother's memory through the Art Factory, the place she has created where kids can forget their troubles and enter the world of their imagination. Where anything is possible. Through a chance encounter, she meets the gorgeous Michael Bartle and is very much taken by his charms until she discovers he is the 'Godiva' man - a notorious play boy who has made his money in the lucrative world of horse breeding and is already involved with the glamorous and famous Veronica. To raise money to keep her precious Art Factory open, Michael convinces her to go on Veronica's TV show to talk about the project and to raise the much needed money to keep it open. ...

Vicky Jewson shows a talent and flair on the level of Scorsese in Goodfellas with her debut masterpiece Lady Godiva. After seeing this film, i now realize that all other films are meaningless by comparison. This film is a shining example of true British female directing talent...of which their is little, unlike the UAE where females are allowed to direct larger budget films. Vicky Jewson should direct the next James Bond film, because of her godlike skill in getting great performances from her exceptional cast. Vicky Jewson for president. I just hope people realize the greatness
