A male Elizabethan courtier begins a journey of self-discovery that involves four centuries and a sex change. Swinton's simple but unique beauty captures the androgyny of the perfect Everyman/woman, while director Potter creates from Virginia Woolf's novel a humorous and visually splendid succession of episodes that is a constant joy to watch. A literary film rather than a literature substitute.
