Orlando

Orlando is a novel by Virginia Woolf. It is the story about a young man named Orlando, born in England during the reign of Elizabeth I, who decides not to grow old. He doesn't, and he passes through the ages as a young man... until he wakes up one morning to find that he has metamorphed into a woman.

A film adaptation of the novel was made in 1993, starring Tilda Swinton[?] as Orlando and Quentin Crisp as Queen Elizabeth.
