Apparently Dakota Fanning isn’t as Innocent as She Looks…

By  | 

Dakota Fanning sure has come a long way since her days as a child actress. First, she went basically naked in Very Good Girls. Then she proved she actually isn’t as innocent as she looks in The Last of Robin Hood. But if you still need MORE proof that the 20-year-old actress is all grown up and taking on very serious roles, you need to watch the new trailer for Effie Gray.

The film, which also stars Emma Thompson and Tom Sturridge, was originally set to come out in November, but was pushed until early April due to legal issues. Here’s the official summary:

In her original screenplay EFFIE GRAY, Emma Thompson takes a bold look at the real life story of the Effie Gray-John Ruskin marriage, while courageously exposing what was truly hiding behind the veil of their public life. Set in a time when neither divorce nor gay marriage were an option, EFFIE GRAY is the story of a young woman coming of age and finding her own voice in a world where women were expected to be seen but not heard. EFFIE GRAY explores the roots of sexual intolerance, which continue to have a stronghold today, while shedding light on the marital politics of the Victorian era.

Did you ever think you’d see the day where little Dakota Fanning not only become a teen bride but then runs off and has an affair with someone else?! ‘Cause we sure didn’t! Oh, Hollywood…

Check out the Effie Gray trailer above and be sure to catch the full film in theaters April 3rd!
