Clarke stars as Elizabeth Barrett, in the true story about the love affair between poet Barrett and playwright Robert Browning. The title comes from the world-famous poem How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways, written by Barrett and often read today at weddings.
Set in the mid-19th century, affluent Londoner Barrett has gained worldwide fame and recognition for her poetry. However, fragile and weakened by a mysterious illness, she lives as a virtual recluse in a darkened upstairs room on Wimpole Street, London. She is reliant on Laudanum to relieve her night terrors, which is administered by her protective, widowed father, Edward. When young buck Browning comes into Barrett’s life, Edward is determined to keep them apart, and the men battle over her.
The British-produced film is being staged by Damian Jones, of DJ Films (Goodbye Christopher Robin [+lee también:

Bankside’s Stephen Kelliher said: “We are thrilled to be able to bring this most compelling of love stories to the world, and to be able to do so with such a talented team of people both in front of and behind the camera is a privilege.”
