The story of the artist Dora Carrington’s love affair with the author Lytton Strachey

This feisty biographical film based on the 1968 biography of Lytton Strachey written by Michael Holroyd includes an opening scene shot on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway at Goathland station, with ex-Lambton Collieries Robert Stephenson & Company 0-6-2T No.5 at the head of the train. The arrival scene is quite unusual in being a rear three-quarters shot, something not often seen in feature film.

A very unusual rear-view shot of a train arriving at Goathland. The loco at the front is Lambton Tank No.5.
