The debut feature from actress turned director Frances O’Connor is an involving, brooding biopic of the author of Wuthering Heights, charting Emily Brontë’s tumultuous journey into womanhood.
A rebel for her time who railed against societal expectations of women, Emily’s story is both an uplifting and tragic one.
Emma Mackay (Sex Education) delivers a beautiful, nuanced performance while there is strong support from Adrian Dunbar (Line of Duty) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.
