Warner Bros. has released a poster and trailer for the biographical drama Emily. Written and directed by Frances O’Connor, the film tells the story of the life of Wuthering Heights author Emily Brontë, played by Emma Mackey (Sex Education), and the relationships that inspired her; take a look here…
“EMILY” tells the imagined life of one of the world’s most famous authors, Emily Brontë. The film stars Emma Mackey (“Sex Education”, “Death on the Nile”) as Emily, a rebel and misfit, as she finds her voice and writes the literary classic Wuthering Heights. “EMILY” explores the relationships that inspired her – her raw, passionate sisterhood with Charlotte (Alexandra Dowling – “The Musketeers”) and Anne (Amelia Gething – “The Spanish Princess”); her first aching, forbidden love for Weightman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen – “The Lost Daughter”, “The Haunting of Bly Manor”) and her care for her maverick brother (Fionn Whitehead – “The Duke”, “Dunkirk”) whom she idolises.
Emily stars Emma Mackey, Alexandra Dowling, Amelia Gething, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Fionn Whitehead, Adrian Dunbar and Gemma Jones.
Emily arrives in cinemas on October 14th.
