"Winslet and Ronan don't have chemistry so much as a kind of mesmerising tectonic accord, and slowly but surely, the two converge."
- Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

"The contained, potent performance is one of Winslet's best."
- Caryn James, BBC.com

"It is a love story that is also a fascinating artefact: quixotic, romantic, erotic."
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

A fictionalised account of the life of the 19th century palaeontologist Mary Anning, Kate Winslet plays the pioneering scientist with Saoirse Ronan as the gentlewoman who falls in love with her while staying in Mary’s beloved Lyme Regis.

Francis Lee follows up God’s Own Country with a film that is every bit as immersive, tactile and emotionally powerful, aided by the devastatingly good Winslet and Ronan.
