Emily

 

Director: Frances
O'Connor

 

The imagination behind Wuthering Heights,
Frances O’Connor’s
directorial debut is a reimagined biopic of passionate
introvert Emily Brontë.
Uninterested in respectable society or becoming a teacher like
her sister Charlotte, Emily prefers to live in her imagined stories, writing poetry
and wandering
the moors with her rebellious older brother Branwell.

 

But her contentment is shaken with the arrival of new parish assistant Mr
Weightman.

Director, Frances O Connor, Stockholm International Film Festival 2022Quotes:‘★★★★This
is a sensually imaginative dive into the life of the Wuthering Heights
author: it is a
real passion project for O’Connor, with some wonderfully arresting insights.’’-Peter
Bradshaw,
The Guardian‘’Connor’s
well-modulated
debut doesn’t pretend to be a faithful recreation of the facts of the Brontës’
lives. Instead itsucceeds
on a much trickier level, giving us a psychologically vivid Emily
who did not write “Wuthering Heights” because a real-life
romance unlocked her passionate
nature, but whom we’d love to imagine having had such a grand affair, because she
was always
the woman with “Wuthering Heights” inside her.’’-Jessica
Kiang, Variety ‘Mackey, in particular, is a powerhouse. The young star is
matched well with O’Connor’s carefully
calibrated, appealingly earnest script, which approximates a modern sensibility
without
striking a false note or straying from Emily’s contemporaneous moors.’’-Tara
Brady, The Irish Time
