Victorian biopic from writer/actress Emma Thompson, starring Dakota Fanning as Euphemia Gray - one third of the Gray-Ruskin-Millais love triangle that scandalised 1850s Britain.
In a time when neither divorce nor gay marriage were an option, the story of Gray's strained marriage to renowned art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise) and her affair with artist John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge) explores the roots of sexual intolerance and the marital politics of the Victorian era.
Shot in 2012, the film's release was delayed due to lawsuits claiming Thompson's scripts were plagiarised. The first was from an un-produced screenplay and the second from a stageplay, both on the same subject. Thompson won the cases.
