The seductive true story of Virginia Woolf’s love affair that inspired her great work
Sedona AZ (August 28, 2019) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the critically-acclaimed new drama “Vita & Virginia” Sept. 6-11 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“Vita & Virginia” features an award-winning all-star ensemble cast including Gemma Arterton, Elizabeth Debicki and Isabella Rossellini.
Set amidst the bohemian high society of 1920s England, “Vita & Virginia” tells the scintillating true story of a literary love affair that fueled the imagination of one of the 20th century’s most celebrated writers.
Vita Sackville-West (Gemma Arterton) is the brash, aristocratic wife of a diplomat who refuses to be constrained by her marriage, defiantly courting scandal through her affairs with women. When she meets the brilliant but troubled Virginia Woolf (Elizabeth Debicki), she is immediately attracted to the famed novelist’s eccentric genius and enigmatic allure.
So begins an intense, passionate relationship marked by all-consuming desire, intellectual gamesmanship, and destructive jealousy that will leave both women profoundly transformed and inspire the writing of one of Woolf’s greatest works.
“Vita & Virginia” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Sept. 6-11. Showtimes will be 4 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 6, 7, 10 and 11; and 7 p.m. on Sunday and Wednesday, Sept. 8 and 11.
