Dutch director Sacha Polak is preparing a new feature, Vita & Virginia, billed as “the true story of the passionate relationship between Virginia Woolf and her only lover, the enigmatic author Vita Sackville-West – a reminder that only genuine connection makes life worth living.”

Vita & Virginia, based on an original screenplay by Dame Eileen Atkins, will mark Polak’s English-language debut. 

Romola Garai will be playing Vita Sackville-West.
