Though we won’t know the US distributor until next month, "Effie Gray" will bow in UK cinemas on October 10. This is the first original screenplay by Thompson, who won a 1996 Oscar for adapting Jane Austin’s "Sense and Sensibility" and also penned the Nanny McPhee films.
Fanning plays the titular bride — of critic John Ruskin — whose marriage was unconsummated and who left Ruskin for "Ophelia" painter John Everett Millais. Scandalous.
The film is directed by Richard Laxton.
