Actor Frances O’Connor’s directorial debut imagines author Emily Brontë’s own Gothic story as the grist for her imaginative and passionate novel Wuthering Heights, now considered one of the greatest books of all time. Haunted by the death of her mother, Emily yearns for artistic and personal freedom as she struggles to channel her creative potential. Sex Education‘s Emma Mackey stars in this visually stunning, revisionist biography of a brilliant and rebellious misfit’s singular moment of triumph.

“O’Connor’s Emily overcomes her quirks, engages her desire, and fulfills her passions—and then some.” — Tim Cogshell, AV Club
