Dress up in the new Emily Bronte movie to go to the poster

A DRESS worn in a film based on the life of author and poet Emily Brontë is featured in a new exhibition.

Every Leaf Speaks Bliss to Me: Emily, The Moors and Creative Craven’s Landscape – at Skipton Town Hall – will explore the world of creativity inspired by the region’s landscape.

Drawing on a history stretching back centuries, the exhibition – which runs from this Saturday (October 8) until December 23 – explores film, literature, photography, music, visual arts and dance created and inspired by the rugged beauty of the Dales.

And at the heart of the exhibition – and lending its name to the title – is a central exhibit showcasing exclusive material from the soon-to-be-released Warner Brothers film Emily, starring French-British actress Emma Mackey.

Based on the life of Emily Bronte of Haworth, the author of Wuthering Heights, the film is produced by Piers Tempest – who lives near Skipton.

Mr Tempest donated the dress worn in the film by Emma Mackey to the exhibition.

Directed by Academy Award-winning costume designer Michael O’Connor – and seen in the film’s official trailer – the dress will be on display alongside stills and behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast and crew.

Emily chronicles the imaginary life of the writer, as she finds her voice and writes the classic Wuthering Heights.

The exhibition will dive into the creative process behind the film and some of its filming locations in Craven.

Danielle Daglan, Head of Cultural Services at Craven Council, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received this beautiful costume from a fantasy film about the iconic literary great that was Emily Bronte. The donation inspired us to dig deeper into Emily’s story and the larger story of how the landscape inspires the creative process, allowing us to bring together a unique combination of art forms to create a more immersive exhibition.

“We are very grateful to Piers Tempest and Warner Bros UK for the donation, and for their enthusiasm and support during the development of the exhibit.”

Councilor Simon Myers, Chairman of the Craven Council, said: “I am delighted that the release of this terrific film based on the life of one of our local literary legends has inspired this great exhibition.”

The exhibition gallery is free to enter and is open Monday to Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Emily hits theaters Friday, October 14.
