Review: Ammonite

Set on the wild Dorset coast in the 1840s, Ammonite begins with a real life historical figure, Mary Anning, who was an early paleontologist in an era where women were not respected as scientists. But she was an exception, and her discoveries changed the world. In this fictionalized interlude, Mary is played by Kate Winslet (Titanic, Sense and Sensibility). She’s past the time of her great discoveries and already famous to other paleontologists. And when one of them visits, hoping she’ll take him for a guided dig, serendipity brings her together with his young and pretty wife Charlotte Murchison (Saoirse Ronan, Little Women, Lady Bird), and they develop an intense bond.
