Emily | Sparkling Matinée Preview

With a glass of prosecco on arrival!

Watch Trailer

Palace Cinemas invites you to be enveloped in the breathtaking exploration of one of the finest British authors of all time with a Sparkling Matinée Preview of one of this year’s Cunard British Film Festival favourites, Emily.

Join us for a complimentary glass of prosecco on arrival!

The directorial debut from British-Australian director Frances O’Connor (Mansfield Park), Emily offers an atmospheric, incisive portrait of Wuthering Heights author Emily Brontë. Transporting cinemagoers to 19th Century England this tale of infinite creativity and desire offers a haunting drama of a young woman’s formidable journey toward discovering her vocation.

The second youngest Brontë sibling, Emily (played to perfection by Sex Education’s Emma Mackey) was only three years old when she lost her mother. Haplessly seeking the love of her father, Emily’s only ally is her brother, Branwell (Fionn Whitehead, The Duke BFF21), who empowers Emily to pursue her creative passions. As artistic discovery is fueled by romantic catastrophe, Mackey’s Brontë navigates triumphs and tragedies to create a deeply engaging and profoundly moving story.

As evidenced in Brontë’s eternal work, we see a tale of female oppression under a demanding patriarchy, as Emily presents the myriad of obstacles between Brontë as she challenged the status quo which was rooted in sexism. A brilliant showcase of talent and Brontë’s legacy.

Reviews:

★★★★

“O’Connor clearly isn’t afraid of rattling cages when approaching sacred texts. There’s something refreshingly untethered about the gusto with which she reimagines Emily.”

– Observer

★★★★★

“A stark and plaintive elegy for the best of all Brontës.”

– Times

“Using a series of finely detailed vignettes, O’Connor renders an ethereal portrait of the young writer.”

– Hollywood Reporter
