A Picture of Katherine Mansfield DVD


Katherine Mansfield was a rebel. A modernist writer known for her short stories, she counted Virginia Woolf and DH Lawrence amongst her friends. Brought up in New Zealand, Mansfield left for London when she was 15 angry at her homeland for its repression of the Māori people. Settled in England, the writer recorded romantic relationships with both men and women in her journals and married John Middleton-Murray (Jeremy Brett) when she was 23, though their marriage was not without troubles… Mansfield’s life was tragically cut short when she died of tuberculosis aged... just 34. This is her story. Each hour-long episode in this magnetic series features a dramatization of a moment in Mansfield’s fascinating life, and an adaptation of one of her short stories. [show more]

Vanessa Redgrave stars at the female protagonist in this 1970s British drama. Born and raised in New Zealand, Katherine Mansfield fled her native land while still in her teens with her sights set on London, England. As she began to record her sexual experiences - with both men and women - in detailed diary entries, Katherine married John Middleton-Murry (Jeremy Brett) and attempted, at the insistance of her mother, to live a seemingly normal life. Katherine, however, was far from conventional in her lifestyle choices. The cast also includes Annette Crosbie and Phyllida Law.
