Tim Burstall artfully translates D.H. Lawrence's novel to the screen.

Richard Somers (Colin Friels) and his wife Harriet (Judy Davis), essentially portraits of Lawrence and his wife Frieda, leave the narrow bigotry of provincial English life for Sydney, hoping for a new freedom and a less constrained life.

Instead they find, on one hand, a vulgar suburbia, and on the other, a dangerous clash of political passions.
