About this movie

Written by and co-starring Academy Award® Winner Emma Thompson, Effie Gray is a sumptuous historical drama set against a luscious backdrop exploring the scandalous love triangle between Victorian art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise), his young bride Effie Gray (Dakota Fanning), and his protégé, painter John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge). After marrying Ruskin, Effie quickly realizes her marriage is a lie when Ruskin refuses to consummate it. Yearning for affection, she soon falls for the charms of the charismatic Millais. Desperate to be freed from Ruskin, Effie embarks on a life-changing journey to become one of the first women in history to seek a divorce from her husband.

We really enjoyed this movie. It is well written and well acted. Yes, some may describe it as... a bit slow, but not boring. There is a difference. But that's how these movies are. If you don't like that, don't rent it. Hope that helps.

I didn't think Dakota Fanning fell flat in acting. I think she portrayed her pain very nicely.
