The drama Vita and Virginia illuminates the friendship and affair of the writers Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West. Again Hollywood Reporter reported, the two writers will be played by Eva Green and Gemma Arterton, who will also act as executive producers. It is directed by Chanya Button, based on a script by Eileen Atkins, who also wrote the factual play that the film is based on.
The first main character in Vita and Virginia is Virginia Stephen (Eva Green), who married Leonard Woolf in 1912. Ten years later she meets the author Victoria “Vita” Sackville-West (Gemma Arterton), with whom she becomes friends and begins an affair that will last for a decade. The two women remained friends until Woolf’s death in 1941.
Eva Green was most recently seen in The Isle of Special Children with Asa Butterfield. Her co-star Gemma Arterton can be seen in the film The Girl with All the Gifts, which has been running in Germany since February 9, 2017. Vita and Virginia is slated for release in 2018.
