The film is based on the 1928 novel by English author D. H. Lawrence, and is notorious for its explicit descriptions of sex, use of four-letter words, and depiction of a relationship between an upper-class woman and a working-class man. 

The uncensored version was infamously banned in the UK at the time for it’s racy nature.

Emma, who plays Lady Constance ‘Connie’ Chatterley, acts alongside Jack O’Connell in the film, who portrays Oliver Mellors.

Speaking to People on the power the film gives to women, they explained: ‘A journey that I think a lot of women go on is finding that power in your sexuality, and also knowing that it’s okay to want pleasure and to strive for pleasure.

‘And for that to be a really powerful and beautiful thing and not something that you need to not acknowledge at all, or feel bad about, or shame over.’

Emma continued that the sex scenes are ‘a really beautiful thing’ and give power to the actors and audience.
