minutes

UNITED KINGDOM

A mid-19th-century British love story and scientific vignette, starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan. A film brimming with contrast, in which cold, inert, dusty fossils bring unbridled passion to life between two women, one of whom is Mary Anning, an English palaeontologist who revolutionised the field through sheer determination. A smart, novelistic film.
