Effie Gray

Effie Gray Release Date: April 3, 2015

In her original screenplay Effie Gray, Emma Thompson takes a bold look at the real life story of the Effie Gray-John Ruskin marriage, while courageously exposing what was truly hiding behind the veil of their public life.

Set in a time when neither divorce nor gay marriage were an option, Effie Gray is the story of a young woman coming of age and finding her own voice in a world where women were expected to be seen but not heard.

The movie, starring Dakota Fanning, explores the roots of sexual intolerance, which continue to have a stronghold today, while shedding light on the marital politics of the Victorian era.
