Emily is a biographical drama film that depicts the brief life of English writer Emily Brontë before she wrote Wuthering Heights. The movie is written and directed by actor-turned-director Frances O’Connor in her directorial debut and stars Emma Mackey. Fionn Whitehead, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Alexandra Dowling, Amelia Gething, Adrian Dunbar and Gemma Jones also appear in supporting roles. Emily will be in cinemas on 14 October 2022.
Emily imagines the transformative, exhilarating, and uplifting journey to womanhood of a rebel and a misfit, one of the world’s most famous, enigmatic, and provocative writers who died too soon of tu tuberculosis at the age of 30.
Emily is an unconventional Victorian biopic, showcasing the making of a rebellious and talented writer, who manages to break all societal boundaries to express her freedom of thought at a time when women were not yet liberated.
