Dakota Fanning in 'Effie' -- FIRST LOOK!

Dakota Fanning in 'Effie' -- FIRST LOOK!

Dakota Fanning dons a long brunette wig as she starts filming on Effie in Greenwich in London on Tuesday afternoon (October 25).

The 17-year-old stars as the title character in the movie about her doomed marriage to art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise) in 1840′s London.

Despite her beauty, Ruskin didn’t consummate the marriage and the devastated Effie eventually fell in love with Ruskin’s protégé, painter John Everett Milias (Tom Sturridge).

Penned by Emma Thompson, she also stars in the movie as Lady Eastlake, the woman who takes the suffering Effie under her wing.

    This is a really great opportunity for a Dakota, and, yes, it would be interesting to know how she’s handling her studies. The only thing that makes sense to me is that, just as she’s always done, there’s a chunk of time set aside each day for study. Anyway, as far as I know (Wikipedia), she’s in NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, and I suppose she’s got things all figured out. Her smarts is surely a factor too.

    I hope her school is going well. This movie sounds interesting. Anything penned by Emma Thompson usually is.

    I think the movie will be interesting. The Effie biographer, Suzanne Fagence Cooper, wrote of Effie: “Her life reads like a novel, full of colour, sensation, despair, and romance.” With a screenplay by Emma Thompson and the acting talent in it, this movie has a lot of potential–I’m really looking forward to seeing it. Also great will be seeing Dakota in an adult role: Effie was around a month shy of 20 when she married Ruskin.
