Effie Gray explores the scandalous true story of the troubled relationship between Victorian art critic John Ruskin and Effie Gray, his teenage bride. After marrying at 19, Effie quickly realises her marriage is a lie when Ruskin refuses to consummate it. Yearning for affection, she falls for the artist John Everett Millais.
