Following a prolonged development process, the Emma Thompson-scripted period piece Effie is finally in the can. Dakota Fanning stars in this biopic of Effie Gray that centers on her doomed marriage to art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise) in 1840’s London. Despite her beauty, Ruskin didn’t consummate the marriage and the devastated Gray eventually fell in love with Ruskin’s protégé, painter John Everett Milias (Tom Sturridge). The first images from the film have no landed online, and they give us a look at Fanning in her period garb and Thompson as Lady Eastlake, an art critic and historian who was also one of Effie’s friends.
