Abstract:

Based on the obscenity trial of D.H. Lawrence's book "Lady Chatterley's lover." The book was banned in England for 30 years for its graphic language and depictions of illicit sex. The case finally came before a jury of ordinary citizens in October 1960. Two jurors have their passion inflamed by Lawrence's prose. After weighing in the evidence in court each day, they explore new erotic frontiers by night. In the end, they must decide whether the novel might deprave and corrupt the book-buying public - and if that is what has happened to them.
