Down here at the Texas Branch Office of Through the Shattered Lens, our internet and cable were both out on Monday night and for all of Tuesday. It was Hell but, fortunately, we’re back up and running today. Unfortunately, as a result of everything being down, I missed the premiere of the trailer for Ammonite.
Ammonite, which stars Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan, is expected to be a major Oscar contender. There’s already speculation that this film could win Winslet her second Oscar and Ronan her first. Winslet plays paleontologist Mary Anning while Ronan is cast as geologist Charlotte Muchison. The trailer certainly suggests that the film could very well be a contender. It’s a period piece starring two acclaimed actresses and dealing with not only universal themes but also subject matter that feels very relevant to what’s happening in the world today.
Well, better late than never, here’s the trailer for Ammonite!
