Vita and Virginia is a love story of the affair and the friendship between writer Virginia Woolf "Elizabeth Debicki", and aristocrat Vita Sackville West "Gemma Arterton". In 1922, when Vita receives an invitation their paths crossed in Bloomsbury with Virginia. Their romance overcomes all social boundaries, Virginia's mental health struggles Vita's recklessness and neither will ever be the same without the other.Written by
I'd been looking forward to this - literary lesbian tale with two actresses I like. Sounds perfect. My unease grew with the modern music on the soundtrack but the main problem was the dull dialogue. Poor Gemma Arterton, Elizabeth Debicki and the other talented cast member were like goldfish, mouthing nothing. There was no real tension and to be honest no plot to speak of. Debicki probably comes out of it the best but a hugely disappointing, dull pudding of a movie.
