Filmmaker Francis Lee follows up God’s Own Country with Ammonite.
The film is shown Cotton Exchange Rooftop Garden, 14 August, 6pm. See here for tickets.
The film is every bit as immersive, tactile and emotionally powerful, aided by the devastatingly good Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan.
In this fictionalised account of the life of 19th century palaeontologist Mary Anning, Winslet plays the pioneering scientist with Ronan as the gentlewoman who falls in love with her while staying in Mary’s beloved Lyme Regis.
