The Rainbow: Ken Russell's rather loose adaptation of the last part of D.H. Lawrence's "The Rainbow" sees impulsive young Ursula coming of age in pastoral England around the time of the Boer War. At school, she is introduced to lovemaking by a bisexual physical education instructress. While experiencing disillusionment in her first career attempt (teaching), she has an affair with a young Army officer, who wants to marry her. Unable to accept a future of domesticity, she breaks with him, and eventually leaves home in search of her destiny.

It is an art film.. it has some fornication and nudity scenes that some moralists will find pornographic for it is "pleasures of the flesh".

Great movie. A pity someone with such energy and passion, but didn't quite know what to do with it. Love the "rainbow" analogy, fits perfectly into her story, chasing after "a rainbow"...

Good adaptation of DH Lawrence. If you watch this just to see Paul McGann's naked butt in the moonlight, nobody would blame you. But this movie is so much more. If you like literature and drama, you will like this. 4/5 stars from me.

Beautiful and unusually restrained Ken Russell film! Glenda Jackson plays the mother of the character she portrayed in Women in Love!
