Written by Oscar-winning Emma Thompson and from the producers of the cinematic masterpieces Howard's End and Tree of Life, Effie Gray, released on DVD on 23rd February 2015 courtesy of Metrodome, explores the scandalous true story of the troubled relationship between Victorian art critic John Ruskin and Effie, his teenage bride.

After marrying at the tender age of 19, Effie quickly realises her marriage is a lie when Ruskin refuses to consummate it. Yearning for affection, she soon falls for the charms of the artist John Everett Millais. Desperate to be freed from John, Effie embarks on a life-changing journey to become one of the first women in history to seek a divorce from her husband, making her an everlasting figure in feminist history.

In this career-marking performance Dakota Fanning stars in her first adult role as the eponymous Effie, leading a supporting cast of prized English actors including Emma Thompson, Julie Walters, Greg Wise and David Suchet.

The film is produced by Andreas Roald and former President of Merchant Ivory Productions Donald Rosenfeld, who created such cinematic masterpieces as The Remains of the Day and Howards End and also recently produced Terence Malick's Tree of Life. Effie Gray was filmed in the Scottish Highlands, London, and Venice, Italy. Andrew Dunn (Gosford Park, The Madness of King George) is the cinematographer and two-time Academy Award nominated Ruth Myers (LA Confidential, Emma) designed the costumes. Paul Cantelon (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) composed the score.
