Nope, not Emily in Paris, nor Emily the Criminal. She is Brontë, Emily Brontë, she who said honest people don’t hide their deeds. If you liked Wuthering Heights you will looooove EMILY. Who was that woman who painted Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff (no last name) in a tortured love cycle? Director O’Connor (whom you might recognize as the star of Patricia Rozema’s 1999 MANSFIELD PARK) sits tall in the director’s chair with an intensely sensual biopic of the great 19th century novelist. There is enough biographical evidence out there to imagine Emily
