About the Film

AMMONITE
2020, Neon, 120 min, UK/Australia/USA, Dir: Francis Lee

In the 1840s, self-taught palaeontologist Mary Anning (Kate Winslet) works alone on the wild Southern English coastline of Lyme Regis. The days of her famed discoveries behind her, she now hunts for common fossils to sell to rich tourists to support herself and her ailing mother (Gemma Jones). When one such tourist, Roderick Murchison (James McArdle), arrives in Lyme, he entrusts Mary with the care of his young wife Charlotte (Saoirse Ronan), who is recuperating from a personal tragedy. Too poor to turn him down but proud and dedicated to her work, Mary clashes with her unwanted guest – they are two women from utterly different worlds. Yet Mary and Charlotte eventually discover they can each offer what the other has been searching for: the realization that they are not alone. It is the beginning of a passionate and all-consuming love affair that will defy all social bounds and alter the course of both lives irrevocably.
