First look at Lee's upcoming period romance.


Writer/director Francis Lee follows up his acclaimed 2017 debut God's Own Country with period romance Ammonite, and has enlisted the star duo of Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan. Winslet plays Mary Anning, a real life 19th century fossil collector whose discoveries helped shaped our knowledge of dinosaurs. Lee's film imagines a romance between Anning and a young woman (Ronan) charged to her care. Gemma Jones, James McArdle, Alec Secareanu and Fiona Shaw also star.

Ammonite is in US cinemas from November 13th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer and poster below.


The official synopsis reads:

In 1800s England, acclaimed but unrecognized fossil hunter Mary Anning (Kate Winslet) 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 Murchison (Saoirse Ronan), 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.
