If you woke up this morning thinking to yourself, “Dang, I sure would like to see Gentleman Jack meets Portrait of a Lady on Fire, starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan, with a side of dinosaurs” — well, friend, you are in luck! The trailer for Ammonite, Francis Lee’s Mary Anning biopic, dropped this morning and it has all the hallmarks of a lesbian classic: an independent spinster who’s competent at her job and wants to be left alone, a melancholic young bride who hates her husband’s guts, the ocean, homosexually charged violins, erotic piano, longing looks, and forbidden touches.
Also I’m not sure if these fossils are dinosaurs; I just keep saying that because I like to Photoshop Kate Winslet into images with dinosaurs and no one has stopped me yet.
Supposedly we will be able to see this movie on November 13th! I for one cannot wait! 🦕
