- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: Despite initially clashing with her mid-19th century preacher father's new assistant curate, an idiosyncratic young woman ends up falling for him, all while pursuing her love of writing.
It's the 1840s and Emily Brontė (EMMA MACKEY) is a young woman with lives with her three siblings -- Branwell (FIONN WHITEHEAD), Charlotte (ALEXANDRA DOWLING), and Anne (AMELIA GETHING) -- with their widowed parish preacher father, Patrick (ADRIAN DUNBAR), and their aunt (GEMMA JONES). While the future seems promising for her siblings, things seem less so for Emily who's seen as an odd duck of sorts by most of her family -- save for Branwell -- as well as the local townsfolk.
It doesn't help that she bristles at her interactions with her father's new assistant curate, William Weightman (OLIVER JACKSON-COHEN), who's tasked with improving her French language lessons. While the two initially clash, they eventually end up in a secret and torrid love affair. But when he has second thoughts, that throws Emily's life into a tailspin, all as she contemplates her life as a writer.
