Emily (Emma Mackey)s, and dreams. Emily though, is wildly alive. She rages with emotion, has a voice yearning to be heard, and her mind is overwhelmed by imagination. She has no interest in staying silent and doing what others want. And Emily is about to show you why.

Emily tells the imagined life of one of the world’s most famous authors, Emily Brontë. The film stars Emma Mackey 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 and Anne her first aching, forbidden love for Weightman and her care for her maverick brother whom she idolises.

Frances O’Connor makes her directorial debut with Emily from her own original screenplay.

The film also stars Adrian Dunbar and Gemma Jones


With a bracingly irreverent approach to its story and Emma Mackey bringing Brontë vibrantly to life, Emily is a biopic that manages to feel true while taking entertaining creative liberties.

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.

A stark and plaintive elegy for the best of all Brontës.

O’Connor does not fall for the myth of a romantic place which breeds talent. Instead she recognises the pressure cooker effect of a tightly constrained world.

The result, while it might greatly affront scholars, is a film brimming with warmth, heart and intelligence.

O’Connor clearly isn’t afraid of rattling cages when approaching sacred texts. There’s something refreshingly untethered about the gusto with which she reimagines Emily…
