Watch: Dakota Fanning Has An Affair In U.S. Trailer For 'Effie Gray' With Emma Thompson And Tom Sturridge

So you get married and…then what? Back in ye olden days, when refined folk didn’t dare discuss the matters regarding the bedroom, betrothal could be tricky. Once you laid down in bed with the person you pledged your life to… what are you supposed to do? And what if you probably shouldn’t have married them in the first place? Welcome to the world of “Effie Gray,” via this new U.S. trailer for the film.

Richard Laxton directs this drama about the marital trouble that arises between art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise) and his wife Effie Gray (Dakota Fanning), who have yet to consummate. But Effie finds hope of a better, more fulfilling life in a relationship with Pre-Raphaelite artist John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge), but in a time when divorce is unheard of, their affair is dangerous. 

Emma Thompson, David Suchet, Robbie Coltrane and Julie Walters round out the cast of this promising looking costume drama. “Effie Gray” opens on April 3rd. [Vlicious!]
