This evening the Everyman Borough Yards in London was the scene of the premiere of Emily, Frances O’Connor’s directorial debut.

The film tells the imagined life of one of the world’s most famous authors, Emily Brontë, starring Emma Mackey (“Sex Education”, “Death on the Nile”) as Emily, a rebel and misfit, as she finds her voice and writes the literary classic Wuthering Heights.

The story explores the relationships that inspired her – her raw, passionate sisterhood with Charlotte (Alexandra Dowling – “The Musketeers”) and Anne (Amelia Gething – “The Spanish Princess”); her first aching, forbidden love for Weightman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen – “The Lost Daughter”, “The Haunting of Bly Manor”) and her care for her maverick brother (Fionn Whitehead – “The Duke”, “Dunkirk”) whom she idolises.

The film also stars Adrian Dunbar (“Line of Duty”) and Gemma Jones (“Bridget Jones’s Baby”, “Gentleman Jack”).

EMILY will be released in cinemas on 14th October by Warner Bros. Pictures. Colin Hart and Scott Davis were on the red carpet, seeking inspiration in the London ether.
