Product Description:

A biographical drama depicting the last years of the famed author D.H. Lawrence, highlighted by the publication of "Lady Chatterley's Lover" and his relationship with his wife.

Plot Synopsis:

This biographical film provides insight into the life of renowned British author D.H. Lawrence, best known for his sexually explicit novel "Lady Chatterley's Lover." In addition to exploring Lawrence's youth, "Priest of Love" examines important events in Lawrence's personal and professional career, including his tempestuous relationship with his wife and sometime collaborator Frieda; his battle against censorship ("Lady Chatterley's Lover" was banned in England for years); and his bisexuality. Lawrence died of tuberculosis in 1930.
