London: The first trailer for Emma Thompson's 'Effie Gray' has been released.
Written and directed by Thompson, the film depicts the true story of the doomed marriage between art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise) and Euphemia 'Effie' Gray (Dakota Fanning), reports suggest.
The childhood friends were married in 1848 but did not consummate their union due to Ruskin's apparent aversion to the female body.
After six years, the couple were granted an annulment and Gray went on to marry the pre-Raphaelite painter John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge).
The film also stars Claudia Cardinale, Robbie Coltrane, James Fox, David Suchet, Julie Walters and Derek Jacobi.
'Effie Gray' will release on October 10 in the UK
