Scene from chatterly

And while some of these adaptations are earnest attempts to tell grown-up stories of adult sexuality, the vast bulk of them are flimsy excuses to hang prurient, bare-faced sex on a façade of class.

She is still working to this day in films like “Hostel: Part II.” She is also an actress of limited range, more notable for her energy and her gameness than her subtlety.

And, as the chintzy photography, flimsy outfits, bad dialogue and bad acting immediately attested, I was prepared for something that would gleefully violate the memory of Gustave Flaubert, and dive straight for the bodice-ripping pleasure the raincoat brigade so eagerly seeks.

But, I am disappointed to report, it’s actually trying to tell a legitimate story, and the film’s first bare breasts don’t appear until 25 minutes in.

You see, there is a long tradition in softcore smut of hiding your smutty intentions my masking them (usually just barely) below the surface of famed literature.

Going back as far as 1967, there have been film versions of The Marquis de Sade’s , and don’t get me started on Lady Chatterly.

Is it weird that I was upset over its stringent literary fidelity?

Am I sounding too pervy when I ask for more sex out of something so reportedly trashy? I think, in this case, the film demanded it, and failed to deliver.
