Effie Gray, dir. Richard Laxton, UK 2014, 108 min., English


It doesn’t take long for Effie Gray (Dakota Fanning) to realise her marriage to distinguished writer John Ruskin (Greg Wise) is a sham. When Ruskin refuses to consummate their union, apparently seeing Gray less as a wife and more as a muse, she soon falls for the charms of the charismatic Pre-Raphaelite painter John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge) – and shocking polite Victorian society in the process.

Claudia Cardinale, David Suchet, Derek Jacobi and Julie Walters join the ensemble cast in Richard Laxton’s fine-tuned historical drama exploring the real-life love triangle that scandalised 19th-century England – written by and co-starring Emma Thompson, and receiving a welcome rerelease for 2021.
