War Within, The - A Portrait of Virginia Woolf

Synopsis
With archival footage, paintings of the period, and family photos of a Victorian childhood of both beauty and abuse, the film interweaves the personal story of Virginia’s life and loves with the turbulent times she lived in. Includes film of the document in her handwriting used to establish the League of Nations, newly-discovered letters to Vita, and the Gestapo list where she and Leonard were marked for arrest.
