Written by

For the first time, actresses Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan will play together in a lesbian romance called “Ammonite”.

The story of this historical drama takes place in the 1820s in a UK coastal town. It is inspired by the life of fossil hunter Mary Anning, especially when she develops an intense relationship with a young woman sent to convalesce by the sea.

Anning is a paleontologist* known for making significant scientific discoveries of Jurassic*** marine fossils** in the English Channel cliffs.

This lesbian romance was written by screenwriter and director Francis Lee, who wrote and directed “God’s Own Country”, a gay romantic drama.

Filming of "Ammonite" will begin in March 2019.

 

* a paleontologist is a scientist who studies fossils.

** A fossil is a prehistoric animal remnant that with the time and events that led to its death now comes in the form of a rock.

*** Jurassic is a period in the history of Earth, as for example the Middle Ages. We are in 2018, imagine year 0, Jurassic was between 201 and 145 million years before year 0.
