Netflix has a vast catalog in which all kinds of possibilities succeed among the audience. However, recently they have refined their formula, and series and movies that follow the formula of other successes that have already appeared on the streaming platform work much better.
Among these successes, one of the most talked-about is “Bridgerton,” a series about classic bourgeoisie filled with tangled plots and marriages. If you’re a fan of this fiction, you’ll surely like the movie that, following its algorithm, is also a big hit on Netflix: “The Lover of Chatterley.”
A perfect movie for fans of the classics
The movie, with a duration of two hours and seven minutes, was released recently and has been in the Top 10 of the most-watched list worldwide for several weeks. It is a British and French success that clearly demonstrates Netflix’s international reach and how one of its movies can impact audiences all over the world.
The story behind “The Lover of Chatterley,” as the name suggests, is a loose adaptation of the novel written by D.H. Lawrence. Starring Emma Corrin and Jack O’Connell, the film is directed by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre, a French filmmaker known for works like “The Mustang” and “Atlantic Avenue.” The movie’s synopsis is as follows:
“A woman who breaks with the norms and traditions of her time when she falls out of love with her husband and embarks on a passionate affair with a man working on her English estate.” Undoubtedly, it seems like a perfect film for someone who doesn’t know what to watch after “Bridgerton” and still craves stories of this kind.
