The film cuts back and forth between the young Iris and John (played by Kate Winslet and Hugh Bonneville), at the height of their romantic adventures as students at Oxford in the 1950s, and the elderly couple (played by Judi Dench and Jim Broadbent), struggling with Iris' decline, as her brilliant mind is ravaged by the effects of Alzheimer's."

  • "Iris Murdoch y John Bayley son los invitados de honor a una cena benéfica en el Somersville College de la Universidad de Oxford. La directora del centro presenta a Iris como "una reputada filósofa así como autora de 26 novelas" y a su marido como "el distinguido profesor de literatura de la Universidad de Barton". Iris hace entonces un discurso sobre la educación y la importancia de la libertad de pensamiento, pasando entonces, y para deleite de todos los presentes, a cantar una canción tradicional irlandesa: "The lark in the clear air". Su amiga Janet Stone la mira embelesada. John la escucha con admiración y sus pensamientos le transportan al pasado."
