Less than a year since their release of Portrait of a Lady on Fire, already Neon has its companion artsy seaside lesbian period piece. Francis Lee’s Ammonite sees Kate Winslet doing the real-life Animal Crossing work of fossil hunting. Saoirse Ronan plays a depressed 1840s housewife who, at her husband’s insistence, tries to alleviate her “melancholia” by becoming Winslet’s apprentice.
The two become very close friends indeed!
Ammonite is set for a November 13 release. Still no news on when we’ll get The Lighthouse‘s companion artsy seaside belligerent men period piece.
