Film: Carrington
1995 film written by Christopher Hampton about the life of historically overlooked English painter Dora Carrington and her relationship with the writer Lytton Strachey.

Provides examples of:

  • But Not Too Gay: The film shies away pretty awkwardly from definitively saying whether or not Lytton slept with Partridge.
  • Driven to Suicide: Carrington, after Lytton's death.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Carrington prefers to go by her last name since she thinks "Dora" is pretty ghastly.
  • Meet Cute: When they first meet, Lytton mistakes Carrington for a teenage boy.
  • Nature Abhors a Virgin: Carrington's older friends pressure her to give it up to her boyfriend because they're bitter that they couldn't get any at that age.
  • Incompatible Orientation: Lytton and Carrington's relationship in a nutshell.
