Emily

Opens 2/24

Emily imagines Emily Brontë’s own Gothic story, which inspired her seminal novel Wuthering Heights. Haunted by the death of her mother, Emily (played by Sex Education‘s Emma Mackey) struggles within the confines of her family life and yearns for artistic and personal freedom, and so begins a journey to channel her creative potential into one of the greatest novels of all time.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)

"With Emily, Frances O’Connor has crafted a first film that feels like the work of an accomplished master."
Jason Bailey, The Playlist
"With her angular face and penetrating gaze, (Emma) Mackey commands the screen, confidently shepherding us through Emily’s mercurial moods. Her eyes — darting nervously at one moment, squinting suspiciously at another — tells us what dialogue can’t."
Lovia Gyarkye, The Hollywood Reporter
