A passionate and all-consuming love affair changes the lives of two 19th century women in the drama-romance Ammonite, written and directed by Francis Lee (God’s Own Country) and starring Kate Winslet (Wonder Wheel) and Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn).

In 1800s England, acclaimed but unrecognized fossil hunter Mary Anning (Winslet) works alone on the rugged Southern coastline, searching for common fossils to sell to tourists to support herself and her ailing mother. When a wealthy visitor entrusts Mary with the care of his wife Charlotte Murchison (Ronan), she cannot afford to turn his offer down. Mary initially clashes with her unwelcome guest, but despite the distance between their social class and personalities, an intense bond begins to develop, compelling the two women to determine the true nature of their relationship.

The Blu-ray, DVD and digital editions of the film include a behind-the-scenes featurette with the cast and crew taking audiences on a behind-the-scenes journey into the making of the remarkable film.
