Emily (15) (AD)


The debut feature from writer/director Frances O'Connor, Emily imagines the transformative, exhilarating, and uplifting journey to womanhood one of the world's most famous, and provocative writers

Head to the wild beauty of the Yorkshire moors for an exhilarating journey imagining the life of one of the world's most enigmatic writers: Emily Brontë, a rebel, a misfit, and the distinctive, ahead-of-her-time voice behind ‘Wuthering Heights’.

Emily explores the relationships that inspired Brontë (Emma Mackey): her raw, emotional turmoil with her sisters (and fellow authors) Charlotte and Anne, her forbidden love for local cleric Weightman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), and her care for her maverick brother (Fionn Whitehead) whom she idolises. O’Connor’s direction is wonderfully unexpected and inventive as she tells this moving 19th century coming of age tale with the all the verve of a 21st century rebellion.
