The Rainbow (1989) DVD9
"Rainbow" is the prequel to "Women in Love", (filmed by Ken Russell in 1969) moving back in time to capture the social and sexual awakening of Ursula Brangwen. Her stern mother Anna and her good-natured father Will do not understand why she wants to work when they have worked so hard to give their children a privileged existence. In the story proper, Ursula finds a role model in independent school teacher Winifred Inger with modern views on love and sex. Ursula then feels betrayed when Winifred then marries her lusty (and wealthy) Uncle Henry. Ursula herself falls in love with Anton, a young soldier who seems to approve of Ursula's ambitions. They have an idyllic sexual relationship until Anton goes off to do his national service. During this time, Ursula moves to London to become a schoolteacher and discovers how hard life is for an independent woman...
