Effie Gray

"You have married no ordinary man." If period romantic drama is your thing, then this spring, director Richard Laxton has just the story for you. The life story of Effie Gray is no Pride & Prejudice, but there's still plenty of drama as the story explores what happens in life after marriage during this time of such proper romantic affairs, especially when it's yet to be consummated. Dakota Fanning plays the title character, a woman who marries art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise), but then soon feels she might have made a terrible mistake and finds solace in the love of another man, artist John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge). And now the first US trailer for the film has arrived, and it feels like any other period drama.

Here's the first US trailer for Richard Laxton's Effie Gray, originally from Apple:

You can still watch the first UK trailer for Effie Gray right here.

Effie Gray is directed by Richard Laxton ("Burton & Taylor") and written by actress and screenwriter Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, Nanny McPhee). The film focuses on the scandal and Victorian-era love triangle between real-life art critic and social reformer John Ruskin (played by Greg Wise), his wife Euphemia "Effie" Gray (Dakota Fanning), and her entanglement with the painter John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge). Emma Thompson, David Suchet, Robbie Coltrane and Julie Walters also star in the film which debuted in the United Kingdom last fall, but doesn't hit the United States until this spring on April 3rd.

    This might be an outlandish statement but I feel like the core readership of this site probably isn't too into this one.

      True. And that diverts me from taking this seriously ...
