Writer and director Francis Lee became fascinated by the life of British paleontologist Mary Anning. But when he discovered there was virtually nothing written about her personal life, he felt compelled to write something that would elevate her.
“Here was this woman, born into poverty in a very strong patriarchal, class-ridden society and she was totally working class and she had very little educations and yet she rose to being the leading paleontologist of her generation,” Lee said during TheWrap’s virtual studio for Toronto International Film Festival.
“I knew I wanted to give her a relationship, but a relationship that felt very respectful of her and again that would elevate her,” Lee continued. “And in this very patriarchal society that didn’t feel like it should be with a man because women in this period were owned by men, they were the subjects of men.”
“Ammonite” is Lee’s second feature-length film. He directed “God’s Own Country” in 2017, which was nominated for Outstanding British Film of the Year at the BAFTAs
This most recent film, which had its world premiere at the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival last week, is a romantic drama between Mary Anning (played by Kate Winslet) and British geologist Charlotte Murchison, played by Saorsie Ronan.
“Ammonite” depicts a passionate love story that unfolds quietly, with long silences and very little music accompaniment, which Lee says was very intentional.
“I just felt she wouldn’t come home and talk about how she felt a lot. I felt that we could tell that story particularly with Kate and Saorsie who are so fantastic without explaining it — through body language, through small gestures, through this internalized emotion.”
Kate Middleton: New Evidence That She’s ACTUALLY Pregnant With Baby #4?!
We know, we know — Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors are like coronavirus conspiracy memes from you Aunt Carol:
They pop up on the internet every day, and they’re almost always bogus.
But insiders say Will and Kate are definitely planning to add at least one more to their royal brood.
And according to knowledgeable sources, the new little prince princess will likely arrive sooner, rather than later.
And by “knowledgable sources,” we’re referring, of course, to London bookies.
Yes, UK tabloid The Express has spoken with some blokes who make their quids and half-pence or whatever from taking bets on things like if and when Kate will have another baby.
“We think that Kate and Wills will add to their family in the future and make a fourth baby odds on to arrive at any point down the line,” bookmaker Harry Aitkenhead tells the newspaper.
But it’s not just people who spend their days handicapping cricket odds who think Kate will soon pop out another one.
Celebrity stylist Lalla Bronshtein saya Kate’s recent fashionn choices indicate that she’s already expecting.
“In recent photos of Kate, her dresses have a more loose, comfortable feel to them,” Bronshtein says.
“The peasant style dresses in particular flow beautifully, while others have a more of an Empire line,” she continues.
From there, Lalla hedges a bit, pointing out that a flowy dress or two doesn’t necessarily mean that we have a pregnant duchess on our hands.
“Although whether she is pregnant or not is anyone’s guess but during previous pregnancies, she wore a similar style to these,” Bronshtein says.
A source tells Australian tabloid New Idea that Will and Kate set aside a lot of time for royal baby-making over the summer.
We assume it involved peasants fanning them with palm fronds suring the act and keeping them hydrated with flagons of mead afterward.
“Kate and William got to enjoy plenty of one-on-one time, too, and they had some intimate, romantic evenings all by themselves,” says the insider of the couple’s recent trip to Turro.
“It also gave them the chance to regroup and map out the rest of their summer, so they could organise their schedule around the next big priority – baby making!”
And in case you’re not satisfied with the “evidence” up to this point, The Express also spoke with a body language expert, who curiously says nothing about Kate’s body language.
“After the grim year the royal firm have had a new royal baby might be just the tonic they and the nation need,” Judi James tells the tabloid.
“Prince William and Kate have worked hard to fill the gap left by the Sussexes and a new baby would establish a sense of continuity and moving forward.”
So there you have it — the usual top-notch reportage from a tabloid whose primary purpose is providing Londoners with something to soak up the grease from their fish and chips.
But the interesting thing is that The Express might have actually lucked into being right on this one.
Kate will likely have another child in the very near future.
But our reason for believing that has nothing to do with her dresses or her body language, and everything to do with the fact that she openly wants to have another kid.
But hey, if you can win a few schillings by placing a wager on something so obvious, have at it!
Demi Lovato Says She Was ‘OK With Being Misunderstood’ Following Max Ehrich Split
Moving on! Demi Lovato shared a message about “healing” and feeling “misunderstood” following her split and broken engagement from fiancé Max Ehrich.
“I knew I was healing when …” the “Cool for the Summer” singer, 28, posted on her Instagram Story during the early hours on Monday, September 28. The list included items like she “enjoyed alone time,” “set boundaries” and “was OK with being misunderstood.”
In Touch confirmed on September 24 the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer and Young and the Restless actor, 29, called it quits after six months of dating. The two began their romance in late March, and Max got down on one knee and proposed in July.
The celebrity couple began feeling the “pressure” surrounding their whirlwind romance and impending nuptials, an insider exclusively told In Touch prior to their breakup. The soap star began “feeling overwhelmed” and “smothered” by Demi leading up to their split, the insider noted. “He needs his space. It’s no secret.”
As for the former Disney kid, she had “a lot riding” on their engagement and the “pressure seemed to be getting to her.” Although the famous pair had “love” for each other, the weight of their commitment began “backfiring.”
Max publicly spoke out about their uncoupling on September 26. “Imagine finding out to the [sic] status of your relationship through a tabloid while your [sic] in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless [dove emoji],” the actor wrote on his Instagram Story.
News of their split came just one week after Demi shut down allegedly fake tweets from Max that showed him gushing over Selena Gomez. The resurfaced social media posts, which the “Confident” singer claimed were edited, showed her former beau comparing her to the Wizards of Waverly Place actress, including writing that Selena was “prettier” than Demi.
“It’s really sad when people FAKE images to put women against each other. If women have conflict, that’s between them, NOT YOU,” Demi wrote on September 13 to defend the Under the Dome actor. She added there are “more important” things to focus on in 2020.
It looks like Demi is ready to start this new chapter solo.
Brad Pitt’s girlfriend Nicole Poturalski hits the runway at Milan Fashion Week
Nicole Poturalski is back on the catwalk.
Brad Pitt’s model girlfriend, 27, has appeared in various magazines throughout the years, but made a surprise rare appearance on the Hugo Boss runway during Milan Fashion Week on Friday.
Poturalski sported a long black collared dress with chunky sandals and a pastel green bracelet and posted that she was “still dreaming about this perfect show” on Saturday.
Another famous model, Irina Shayk, graced the runway as well — but Pitt did not appear to be in attendance.
Poturalski and Pitt, 56, were first linked last summer, and later attended a Kanye West concert together in November after apparently meeting at a restaurant in Germany owned by the model’s husband, Roland Mary. Poturalski and Mary, 68, have been married for eight years and share a 7-year-old son, but are reportedly in an “open” relationship.
