Ammonite stars Kate Winslet as Mary Anning, a trailblazing Victorian-era palaeontologist, who finds herself attracted to Charlotte Murchison (Saoirse Ronan), the young wife of another geologist.

Directed by Francis Lee, who previously made the 2017 contemporary romantic drama God’s Own Country. Also briefly attracted controversy a while back when a British newspaper dug up some distant descendant of one of Anning’s relatives to complain about them fictionalizing a gay romance in her life.

Much as I want to detest referential puns, one of the YouTube comments calls it Portrait of a Lady Bird on Fire, which I must admit is funny.
