Women In Love Academy Award Winner! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Marshall Fine

Before director Ken Russell's name became synonymous with cinematic extravagance and overkill, he actually directed what is one of the most passionate and involving adaptations of D.H. Lawrence in recent memory. Oliver Reed and Alan Bates star as friends who fall in love with a pair of sisters (Jennie Linden and Glenda Jackson, who won an Oscar for the role). But the relationships take markedly different directions, as Russell explores the nature of commitment and love. Bates and Linden learn to give themselves to each other; the more withdrawn Reed cannot, finally, connect with the demanding and challenging Jackson. Shot with great sensuality, it was surprisingly frank for its period (1970) and includes one of the most charged scenes in movie history: Bates and Reed as manly men, wrestling nude by firelight.

Academy Awards

Women In Love received an Academy Award for Actress (Glenda Jackson). Women In Love also received Academy Awards nominations for Directing (Ken Russell), Writing (Best Screenplay based on material from another medium; Larry Kramer), and Cinematography (Billy Williams).
