Overview

A sensuous slow-burn of a film, Francis Lee (God’s Own Country) cements his status as one of the most exciting filmmakers working today with Ammonite. In 1840s England, reclusive paleontologist Mary Anning (Kate Winslet) lives a quiet existence caring for her ailing mother and gathering fossils along the remote beaches of Lyme Regis. When a wealthy tourist offers to pay Mary handsomely to take in his young wife Charlotte (Saoirse Ronan), it seems at first to be an unwelcome disruption to the independent life Mary so carefully guards. But as time passes, the two women form an intense and passionate bond that eclipses everything around them.

Why You Should See This Film
