Effie Gray is a 2012 British biographical drama film directed by Richard Laxton, released in 2014. The film’s release was delayed by lawsuits alleging that the script, written byEmma Thompson, was plagiarised from earlier dramatisations of the same story. The cases were won by Thompson.
Its subject is the love triangle involving Victorian art critic John Ruskin (played by Greg Wise), his wife, Euphemia “Effie” Gray(Dakota Fanning), and Pre-Raphaelite artist John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge). Emma Thompson also appears in the film as Elizabeth Eastlake.
