Oh my god you guys. (OH MY GOD. YOU GUYS.) The Ammonite trailer is out, and just like…take my money! Take my soul! Take all of it! I am sold!
Directed by Francis Lee, the film is set in 1840s England, and it centers on fossil hunter Mary Anning (played by Kate Winslet) and geologist Charlotte Murchison (played by Saoirse Ronan) as they develop a big ol’ queer romance! (Or as the straights like to say, they become the best of gal pals!)
Basically, Charlotte’s husband is like, “Hey, my wife has ye olde sadness; can she join you on your fossil hunts, Mary? I’ll even pay ya!” and (after Mary reluctantly agrees) they catch all of the feels. ALL OF THEM.
There is not a single aspect of this plot I don’t like because 1. Kate Winslet making out with Saoirse Ronan yes okay where do I sign, 2. dinosaur bones! (Cool!)
What did we do to deserve Portrait of A Lady On Fire AND this masterpiece in 2020? (I mean, besides enduring the complete and utter collapse of society?) Truly the only non-cursed thing to happen so far.
Anyway, I don’t even know why I’m talking // the only thing that matters right now is WATCHING THIS ON REPEAT FOREVER (aka until NOVEMBER 13th, WHICH IS WHEN THE FILM IS SLATED TO BE OUT STATESIDE):
