If it’s that relative rarity, a lushly, unabashedly romantic – yet tastefully executed – tale that you relish, then Lady Caroline Lamb is your likely cup of tea.

For his first stint behind the camera, Robert Bolt comes up with a period piece which rings a number of contemporary bells, both emotional and intellectual. His tragic heroine, a controversial free thinker of the early British 1800s, has obvious parallels in present-day femme emancipation.

Outlined, her story follows her headlong flight into matrimony with the politically promising Lamb, then into an equally breathless and unpondered but this time scandalous affair with Byron, and on to her final climactic sacrifice on behalf of her husband’s career.

Sarah Miles shines in a tailored role. Similarly, Jon Finch, as her husband, lends conviction to the film’s most difficult part.
