Actor turned director Frances O’Connor’s sensuous, spine-tingling feature debut EMILY tells the imagined life of one of the world’s most famous authors, Emily Bronte. The film stars Emma Mackey as Emily, a rebel and misfit, as she finds her voice and writes the literary classic, Wuthering Heights.
“Emily flashes back to the days when the young Brontë sisters delighted in the stories they told each other. O’Connor clearly isn’t afraid of rattling cages when approaching sacred texts. There’s something refreshingly untethered about the gusto with which O’Connor reimagines Emily, tossing aside the image of a shy, sickly recluse, replacing it with an antiheroine whose inability to fit in with the ordered world is a source of strength rather than weakness.” The Guardian
