“Ammonite” is a slow burned dramatic love story starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan and written and directed by 2017 UK breakout God’s Own Country, Francis Lee.
Kate Winslet plays Victorian-era palaeontologist Mary Anning. When a wealthy man entrusts Anning with the care of his wife Charlotte Murchison (Ronan), the pair initially clash before developing an intense bond.
The story is set in 1840s England and revolves around the intense relationship between the acclaimed but unrecognized fossil hunter and Charlotte, who is sent to convalesce by the sea.
Mary works alone on the rugged Southern coastline. With the days of her famed discoveries behind her, she now searches for common fossils to sell to tourists to support herself and her ailing mother. When a wealthy visitor entrusts Mary with the care of his wife Charlotte, she cannot afford to turn his offer down. Proud and relentlessly passionate about her work, Mary initially clashes with her unwelcome guest, but despite the distance between their social class and personalities, an intense bond begins to develop, compelling the two women to determine the true nature of their relationship.
