Nearly an entire century ago, the United States banned Lady Chatterley’s Lover from bookshelves. D. H. Lawrence’s Italian novel, full of raunchy thigh-gripping and sexual escapades, was far too obscene for Americans in 1929.

Then, in 1955, a French film adaptation of the story was prohibited from American theaters for “promoting adultery.” L’Amant de lady Chatterley finally premiered here t four years later, but the country had already made its stance clear: The tale of Lady Chatterley was a forbidden delight made only for the privacy of one’s own home. It was scandalous. It was addictive. It was too good.

The novel has been made into various movies and TV shows over the past century, becoming a staple in horny entertainment with adaptations landing at BBC, in theaters, and now, on Netflix. Whereas movie fans have been sent into a tizzy over Netflix’s decision to keep movies like Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery out of theaters, Lady Chatterley’s Lover is the perfect film for home viewing. Erotic, sensual, and incredibly tender, Netflix’s adaptation of the 1928 story is consumed with the desire to hook its audiences.
