Emily (out Jan 12) is the directorial debut of Australian actor Frances O'Connor (Mansfield Park) and is a semi-factual, semi-imagined look at the upbringing of acclaimed 19th century writer Emily Brontë. The romantic subplot is a tiresome and cliched but thankfully, the film is better when exploring Emily's introverted nature and "hot and cold" family dynamics. Grade: B.
