1840. Mary Anning was a renowned paleontologist but now lives modestly with her mother on the rugged south coast of England. Mary gleans ammonites from the beach and sells them to wealthy tourists. One of them, going on a business trip, asks him to board his convalescent wife, Charlotte. It is the start of a passionate love story that will challenge all social barriers and change their lives forever.
An umpteenth film about a lesbian love story has another era which does not revolutionize the genre but which has the particularity of staging two big names in cinema.
It’s well filmed, Bo correct and the renditions of Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan are very good as usual but not overpowering either.
To finish well overall but in the same register does not reach the level of Elisa and Marcela of Isabelle Coixet.
