Emma Thompson Helps Dakota Fanning Find Herself In Effie Gray Trailer
Meanwhile, Emma Thompson has not yet shown up help me navigate through my identity. Rude.
If you squint you can see all of Britain’s actors pass by in the background of this thing. Russell Tovey! Hagrid! Mrs. Weasley!
Here is the previous international trailer for Effie Gray:
And some plot deets, as described by BBC America:
American actress Dakota Fanning (The Twilight Saga) takes on the title role, a teenage Scottish girl who enters into marriage with esteemed art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise) in Victorian-era London. Her life drastically changes in what feels like a mere moment.
For most girls, particularly in a time when women had few rights, this seems to be an ideal union, but there is one problem: Ruskin finds his wife revolting.
Thoughts? My thoughts are mostly “I would follow Emma Thompson to the end of the universe.” Also that I tend to be a fan of wives in revolt in cinema.
This movie hits theaters April 3, 2015.
