«Iris» is a 2001 romantic drama. Iris Murdoch (Judi Dench and Kate Winslet, in Oscar-nominated roles) was l'enfant terrible of the literary world in early 1950s Britain - a live wire who thumbed her nose at conformity via a voracious and scandalous sexual appetite. In this snippet of her life, an aging Murdoch (Dench) faces the onset of Alzheimer's disease and the loss of memories about her younger self (Winslet). Jim Broadbent won the Oscar for his portrayal of her husband. «Iris» directed by Richard Eyre. You can download «Iris» right here!
