EXCLUSIVE: Stars On The Set Of 'Effie' In London (USA & OZ/NZ ONLY)

The scandalous true story of the troubled relationship between Victorian art critic John Ruskin and Effie, his teenage bride. After marrying at the tender age of 19, Effie quickly realises her marriage is a lie when Ruskin refuses to consummate it. Yearning for affection, she soon falls for the charms of the artist John Everett Millais. Desperate to be freed from Ruskin, Effie embarks on a life-changing journey to become one of the first women in history to seek a divorce from her husband, making her an iconic figure in feminist history. The all star cast includes Greg Wise, Julie Walters and Tom Sturridge.
