‘EFFIE GRAY’ will be released in a Special Dual Format Collector’s Edition on 31 May 2021!

Sovereign Film Distribution has announced the return of director Richard Laxton‘s 2014 biographical drama, EFFIE GRAY, inspired by the true story of a scandal that shocked Victorian England, which will be released in Virtual Cinemas and on VOD from 19th April 2021, and will be released in a Special Dual Format Collector’s Edition on 31 May 2021.

The film stars Dakota Fanning, Emma Thompson (who wrote the screenplay), Julie Walters, David Suchet, Derek Jacobi, James Fox, Robbie Coltrane, Claudia Cardinale, Greg Wise, and Tom Sturridge.



Nineteen-year-old Effie Gray marries esteemed art critic John Ruskin, a cold and distant man who, seemingly repelled by his young bride, refuses to consummate their marriage. Neglected and shunned, and her health suffering from the strain of the crumbling relationship, Effie defies Victorian society by striking up a friendship with one of Ruskin’s acolytes, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood painter John Everett Millais. It’s friendship that blossoms into something else, that sends shockwaves through polite society.
