Author Emily Bront, who is best known for her sole book Wuthering Heights, is profiled in Emily.
Her brief but eventful life is chronicled in the upcoming film as she works on her debut novel. It also looks at the familial connections that influenced her and her actual relationship with Weightman.
Along with a host of up-and-coming performers, Sex Education and Death on the Nile star Emma Mackey portrays the title character, a passionate author who passed away at the age of just 30.
One of many upcoming biopics this year is Emily. Others include Netflix’s Blonde, which stars Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe, and Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, which revives the memory of music legend Elvis Presley.
Emily release date
On September 9, 2022, the film premiered at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival and received critical acclaim. It will then be made available to the general public on October 14, 2022, for UK audiences.
The film will not be released in the Americas until early 2023, so US audiences will have to wait a few months longer. The film will be available in theatres on its respective release dates. While Warner Bros. is releasing the film in the United Kingdom, indie label Bleecker Street is handling distribution in the United States after purchasing the film in May 2022.
The movie Emily portrays the imagined biography of one of the most well-known novelists in history, Emily Bront, according to Warner Bros. Emma Mackey plays Emily, a rebellious misfit who finds her voice and creates the literary masterpiece Wuthering Heights, in the movie.
Emily “explores the connections that inspired her, her raw, passionate sisterhood with Charlotte and Anne, her first agonizing, forbidden love for Weightman, and her care for her maverick brother whom she idolizes.”
Frances O’Connor, who directed Mansfield Park and Mr. Selfridge in her debut film, said of Emily Bront: “I’ve always desired to know who she really was. Her work is soaked in such passion, feeling, anger, and strong brilliance. The protagonist of Emily is a rebel and misfit who dares to define herself and embrace her own nature despite the repercussions. And I’m hoping that by giving her a fictional life, Emily Bronte will come back to life.
According to Warner Bros., the movie Emily depicts a fictional life of Emily Bronte, one of the most famous novelists in history. In the film, Emma Mackey plays Emily, a disobedient rebel who discovers her voice and writes the literary classic Wuthering Heights.
In her book, Emily “explores the relationships that inspired her, her raw, passionate sisterhood with Charlotte and Anne, her first agonizing, forbidden love for Weightman, and her care for her maverick brother whom she idolizes.”
In her debut film as a director, Frances O’Connor, who helmed Mansfield Park and Mr. Selfridge, said of Emily Bront, “I’ve always wanted to discover who she truly was. Her writing is drenched in such fervor, feeling, rage, and powerful brilliance. The main character of Emily is a rebel and misfit who strives to embrace her own nature and define herself despite the consequences. I’m also hoping that by giving Emily Bronte a fictional life, she’ll come back to life.
She also shares my love of Emily Bronte and attended university in Leeds, Yorkshire, so I felt like there was quite a synchronicity, he continued.
The trailer for Emily was released on August 11 by Warner Bros UK. The film’s cinematography is hauntingly beautiful and dark with an almost gothic appearance, which seems fitting when you compare it to the type of novel Emily went on to write. From an extremely dramatic shot of Emily standing in the thundering rain to a burning kiss exchanged within the glow of candlelight, this movie seems every bit as riveting as your standard period drama. In the trailer, Emily is depicted as the strange one of the family and is happily traversing the lengths of Yorkshire, terrifying everyone with her “ungodly” writing.
As one of the most well-known, mysterious, and provocative writers in history who passed away far too soon at the age of 30, Emily imagines the transformational, exciting, and uplifting journey to the womanhood of a rebel and a misfit. Frances O’Connor is the director of the 2022 film Emily, which will hit theatres on November 24.
