Emma Mackey makes a blockbuster return with Emily
The audience in general thinks of her as an underrated actor. The sheer devotion and ease with which the actress portrays her character is absolutely brilliant. Furthermore, Emily is a biographical film about Emily Jane Brontë. She is widely acclaimed for Wuthering Heights, which is considered to be one of the finest pieces of classic English literature now. Apart from Wuthering Heights, the renowned writer also published a collection of poems along with her sisters Charlotte and Anne.
Emma Mackey plays the role of Emily, Fionn Whitehead portrays Branwell Brontë, and Alexandra Dowling and Amelia Gething play the two sisters Charlotte and Anne respectively. Most importantly, this movie is the directorial debut of Frances O’Connor who hit the ball out of the park with her first work itself. She is best known for her performances in Artificial Intelligence and Mansfield Park.
The movie has won critics over. A master at movie reviews, Jason Bailey from The Playlist, praised France O’Connor and voiced all our thoughts when he said that her first work seems like that of an accomplished master. Also, the joy you will feel while watching Emma Mackey as Emily breaks all the norms and being her independent self is otherworldly.
The writer had a creative imagination and despite the criticism did not shy away from putting them on paper. Unfortunately, it is not available on any online streaming service as of now but we are sure Netflix will pull up.
