Warner Bros Pictures have announced the UK cinematic release date for Frances O’Connor‘s Emily.
The film marks the directorial feature debut for O’Connor (A.I Artificial Intelligence, The Conjuring 2). The film stars Sex Education‘s Emma Mackey as the famous author Emily Brontë. The rebel, the misfit, the film promises to showcase the story of one of literature’s most enigmatic, and provocative writers who sadly died too soon.
Here’s the Official Synopsis:
“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.
Frances O’Connor makes her directorial debut with “EMILY,” from her own original screenplay. The film also stars Adrian Dunbar (“Line of Duty”) and Gemma Jones (“Bridget Jones’s Baby”, “Gentleman Jack”).
The film will also stars Alexandra Dowling, Amelia Gething, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Fionn Whitehead, Adrian Dunbar and Gemma Jones.
Warner Bros Pictures will release Emily in UK and Irish cinemas from 14th October.
