Give me dragons, spaceships, strange worlds, wonderful heroics, lionhearted men and women, blinking sunlight, fluttering hearts, green women, elves with silver hair, tree branches stretching skyward, smooth pebbles, the heady smell of a rose, swimming in the sea, underground caves, the magic of fingertips touching for the first time, tree houses, cats whiskers, dashing chivalry, wild adventure, duels, devotion, and a proper tea time.
Say what?! A new film written by Emma Thompson about Effie Gray, a child-bride who fights to be released from her loveless marriage to John Ruskin (played by GREG WISE, Thompson’s real-life husband) to be with John Everett Millais, another famous artist?
There is literally nothing about this film that makes me want to not see it. THE BEST NEWS!
I mean, the last film I saw that Thompson wrote was Sense and Sensibility (the best one where she stars with Kate Winslet, Greg Wise and Alan Rickman)—this is a woman who knows how to write movies to be rewatched obsessively.
Effie Gray is coming to theatres in 2014.
So looking forward to this!
