NEON has released the first trailer for the upcoming romantic drama Ammonite, which stars Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan. They play the characters Mary Anning and Charlotte who end up forming an unexpected romantic bond with each other.
The story is set in 1840s England, and it follows the story of “an acclaimed but unrecognised fossil hunter Mary Anning works alone on the rugged Southern coastline. With the days of her famed discoveries behind her, she now searches for common fossils to sell to tourists to support herself and her ailing mother. When a wealthy visitor entrusts Mary with the care of his wife Charlotte, she cannot afford to turn his offer down. Proud and relentlessly passionate about her work, Mary initially clashes with her unwelcome guest, but despite the distance between their social class and personalities, an intense bond begins to develop, compelling the two women to determine the true nature of their relationship.”
The movie comes from writer and director Francis Lee and it is scheduled to hit theaters on November 13, 2020.
