Emily (Emma Mackey) wears a mask. The world tells her she must be quiet, obedient, dutiful. She certainly must neither speak her mind nor share her thoughts, feelings, and dreams. Emily though, is wildly alive. She rages with emotion, has a voice yearning to be heard, and her mind is overwhelmed by imagination.
She has no interest in staying silent and doing what others want. And Emily is about to show you why. Shot with breathtaking beauty and acted with extraordinary emotion and grace, this is an involving perspective on Brontë’s interior life, exploring themes such as gender, independence, creativity, mental health and sexuality.
