The Portrait of Adie Denton



Northampton 1924: Adie Denton is a factory girl with a dead mother, a brood of younger siblings and a life of drudgery looming.

When her best pal Edward eggs her on to apply for a job in the unconventional household of lesbian author Radclyffe Hall, Adie’s life takes a dramatic turn. And so does Edward’s…

The Portrait of Adie Denton blurs fact and fiction in a fast-paced, moving yarn of a working-class girl mixed up in the glittering but dangerous bohemian world of the Parisian demi-monde.

It’s not one love story but many, revealing the untold of ordinary queer folk in an extraordinary queer world.
