EMILY imagines Emily Brontë’s own Gothic story that inspired her seminal novel, “Wuthering Heights.” Haunted by the death of her mother, Emily struggles within the confines of her family life and yearns for artistic and personal freedom, and so begins a journey to channel her creative potential into one of the greatest novels of all time.
What the critics are saying
“O’Connor and Mackey together bring their subject to new heights.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed this film — which looks and feels a lot like Wuthering Heights.”
– Tim Cogshell, FilmWeek (KPCC – NPR Los Angeles)
“Purists are not going to be pleased… But for the rest of us this fantasy does offer the satisfaction of witnessing the short-lived triumph of a fascinating character.”
