Iris, DVD



Biographical account of the life of existentialist author Iris Murdoch as recalled in the memoirs of her husband, Professor John Bayley.

John (Hugh Bonneville) is a shy slightly goofy undergraduate at Oxford who falls for fellow student, the brilliant and charismatic Iris Murdoch (Kate Winslet).

Against all the odds she returns his affection and so begins a love affair that will endure for over 40 years, amid the ups and downs of her achievements as a famous philosophical novelist.

The film eventually flashes forward to the couple in older age, with John (Jim Broadbent) slowly realising that Iris (Dame Judi Dench) has a mental illness, one that threatens the existence of her personality, of the person he knows and loves.
