Stafford Film Theatre: Emily
Frances O'Connor / UK / 2022 / 130 min / 15
Set in a sensuous and gritty 1840s Yorkshire, this beautifully filmed re-imagining of the events within the Brontë household leading up to the publication of Furthering Heights, captures Emily's rebellious nature and troubled relationships within her family wonderfully. Emily (known in the village as 'the strange one') romps across moorland, caressing trees and moss while her widowed father (Adrian Dunbar) preaches judgement from the pulpit. Frances O'Connor has made an impressive, very well received debut as a writer and director with this study of Emily Brontë, intelligently played by Franco-British star Emma Mackey.
