Carrington tells the story of people who tried, in their own way, and at a time when society did not encourage such experiments, to acknowledge openly what most of us are aware of but still reluctant to discuss: that great many differences exist between love and desire. It is a sharp winter's afternoon when writer Lytton Strachey (Jonathan Pryce) - apparently a committed gay - makes the journey from this world to that of Virginia Woolf's sister Vanessa Bell (Janet McTeer) and her husband Clive (Richard Clifford) on the south coast of England. Gazing from a window into the garden beyond - he is transfixed by a boyish figure whose golden bobbed hair catches firelights in the dying rays of the lowering sun. A figure he takes to be a beautiful young man; a figure he comes to know as the wild young painter Dora Carrington (Emma Thompson). As they walk along the cliff-tops of the south coast, they hear the rumble of guns in France and to that music form a bond of deep affection that will mark their lives for the next seventeen years.
