“Emily” tells the imagined life of one of the world’s most famous authors; Emily Brontë. The film stars Emma Mackey (well known for her role on Netflix’s “Sex Education”), “Death on the Nile”) as Emily Brontë, a rebel and misfit, as she finds her voice and writes the literary classic Wuthering Heights.
The film explores the relationships that inspired her – her raw, passionate sisterhood with Charlotte (Alexandra Dowling) and Anne (Amelia Gething), her first aching, forbidden love for Weightman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) and her care for her maverick brother (Fionn Whitehead) whom she idolises.
Frances O’Connor makes her directorial debut with “EMILY,” from her own original screenplay. Also included in the highly recognisable cast are Adrian Dunbar and Gemma Jones.
