How Does The Ending Of Lady Chatterley's Lover Differ From The Book?

If you're like us, you spent the weekend watching Lady Chatterley's Lover. The new Netflix series starring Emma Corin and Jack O'Connell premiered last week (December 2) and has already received negative reviews from fans.

Lady Chatterley's Lover is an adaptation of D.H. Laurent's novel of the same name. In the film, a young woman named Connie (Emma Corin) appears to be alive when she marries Sir Clifford Chatterley (Matthew Duckett). But after injuries from the First World War left Sir Clifford unable to walk, Connie soon felt that she was living on her husband's estate. There she meets and falls in love with gamekeeper Oliver Mellors (Jack O'Connell). Their relationship quickly becomes the talk of the town and the two face difficult decisions about their relationship.

Although Lady Chatterley's Lover follows a similar plot to D.H. Lawrence, there are significant differences between the two, particularly at the end of the film.

So what happens at the end of Lady Chatterley's Lover and how does it differ from the end of the book? That's all you need to know.

How is Lady Chatterley's lover?

The Netflix film concludes Connie and Oliver's love story with what appears to be a happy ending.

After her secret relationship with Oliver is revealed, Connie asks her husband, Sir Clifford, for a divorce. However, he refused to give one and fired Oliver from his job as a gamekeeper.

Connie went to Venice with her sister Hilda and her father. There, she became pregnant and had difficulty keeping up with the looks and whispers of society.

Hilda and Connie return to London, where Hilda gives Connie a letter from Oliver. In the letter, Oliver reveals that he has found a new job in the Scottish Highlands and is living there. He knows the difficulties Connie is going through and seems to invite her to stay with him.

Connie then goes in search of Oliver and the film ends with the two kissing in front of Oliver's new house.

How does the ending of the film differ from the ending of the novel?

Although the novel and film follow a similar pattern until the end, there is one important difference: the novel ends on a cliffhanger.

In the novel, Connie is pregnant and living with her sister, while her husband still refuses to divorce her separately. Oliver has a new job and is still waiting for the divorce to be finalized.

Oliver sends a letter to Connie, which he hopes will lead to the two of them finally being together, but that’s where the relationship ends.

The reader never saw the couple end up together and in a more traumatic situation.
