A passionate love story set in Victorian England, from the director of God's Own Country.

In the 1840s, acclaimed self-taught palaeontologist Mary Anning works alone on the wild and brutal Southern English coastline of Lyme Regis. The days of her famed discoveries behind her, she now hunts for common fossils to sell to rich tourists to support herself and her ailing widowed mother. When one such tourist, Roderick Murchison, arrives in Lyme on the first leg of a European tour, he entrusts Mary with the care of his young wife Charlotte, who is recuperating from a personal tragedy. Mary, whose life is a daily struggle on the poverty line, cannot afford to turn him down but, proud and relentlessly passionate about her work, she clashes with her unwanted guest. They are two women from utterly different worlds.

There will be an Ammonite screening with English subtitles displayed at the bottom of the screen to help viewers who are d/Deaf, hard of hearing or just need help with dialogue to enjoy the film fully, Tuesday 1 June. Click here to book.
