Orlando is a 1992 British historical drama directed by Sally Potter, based on Virginia Woolf's 1928 novel. The film stars Tilda Swinton as Orlando, a nobleman in Elizabethan England who is commanded by Queen Elizabeth I to remain forever young. Miraculously, Orlando does just that, living for centuries without aging and, in a mysterious metamorphosis, changing gender from male to female. The narrative spans four centuries, exploring themes of identity, gender, and the fluidity of time. The movie was praised for Potter's visuals and Swinton's performance.
