In the 1840s, acclaimed self-taught paleontologist Mary Anning works alone on the wild and brutal Southern English coastline of Lyme Regis. The days of her famed discoveries behind her, she now hunts for common fossils to sell to rich tourists to support herself and her ailing widowed mother. When one such tourist, Roderick Murchison, arrives in Lyme on the first leg of a European tour, he entrusts Mary with the care of his young wife Charlotte, who is recuperating from a personal tragedy. Mary, whose life is a daily struggle on the poverty line, cannot afford to turn him down but, proud and relentlessly passionate about her work, she clashes with her unwanted guest. They are two women from utterly different worlds. Yet despite the chasm between their social spheres and personalities, Mary and Charlotte discover they can each offer what the other has been searching for: the realization that they are not alone. It is the beginning of a passionate and all-consuming love affair that will defy all social bounds and alter the course of both lives irrevocably.

"James Ivory might be proud and even jealous of the way writer-director Francis Lee takes the Anglo art house tradition of quality to an uncustomary level of sexual frankness."
Todd McCarthy - DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD DAILY

"Winslet and Ronan don't have chemistry so much as a kind of mesmerising tectonic accord, and slowly but surely, the two converge."
Robbie Collin - DAILY TELEGRAPH (UK)

"AMMONITE is getting billed as a period romance, but where Lee really excels is in evoking the time and place..."
Alex Heeney - SEVENTH ROW

"There's so much grace and nuance in this performance that it truly could be studied to consider all of the smart decisions that Winslet makes in each scene."
Brian Tallerico - ROGEREBERT.COM

"AMMONITE is a passionate love story nourished by the salty sea air and the blissful absence of men; it's also a sharp reflection on how the artistic, scientific and intellectual contributions of women have been systematically written out of history."
Justin Chang - LOS ANGELES TIMES
