The powerful true story based on John Bayley's novels that earned Jim Broadbent an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, Judi Dench a BAFTA Award for Best Leading Actress and Kate Winslet an Academy Award Nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Judi Dench and Kate Winslet bring to the screen one of the most extraordinary women of the 20th Century, celebrated English author Iris Murdoch. As told by her unlikely soulmate, husband John Bayley, Iris first became known as a brilliant young scholar at Oxford whose boundless spirit dazzled those around her. During a remarkable career as a novelist and philosopher, she continued to prove herself a woman ahead of her time. Even in later life, as age and illness robbed Iris of her remarkable gifts, nothing could diminish her immense influence or weaken the bond with her devoted husband.
