The Thistle Hotel is based on the short story "Leves Amores" by Katherine Mansfield, the brilliant New Zealand writer, and weaves actual events from the life of Katherine Mansfield with this 1907 story. When Mansfield was 17 years old, she felt strong attractions to women and sorted these feelings out by writing stories. Her family dealt with the matter in other ways. [ Order DVD Securely ]
