In all its sumptuous splendor, poetic performances, and daring storytelling structure, Orlando is a true cinematic jewel box and an example of the cutting edge yet viably commercial independent cinema of the 1990s woefully under-supported in today's landscape. Based on the Virginia Woolf modernist classic, the film grapples with the dramatic conundrum of time and its impact on identity. The question the film explores has less to do with character or dramatic entanglements than it does with the deceptively simple notion of personality, freed from the progress of time. If Orlando can maintain her/his identity apart from the existential trappings of progressive linear time, what and who exactly is Orlando? As if such metaphysical questions were not enough, this portrait goes a step further, inviting us to identify with a hermaphroditic identity that is both male and female. The director Sally Potter found her truly once in a lifetime performer in a then relatively unknown Tilda Swinton who's unique gravitas is only further enhanced by her androgynous beauty. The story is a fittingly universal one, about the search for the meaning of love and the discovery that the true quest is born from the uncovering and discovery of self.
