In 1905 England, Angel Deverell (Romola Garai) is a grocer's daughter who dreams of becoming a famous writer and inhabiting the gorgeous country mansion that she often walks past but cannot enter. The precocious young woman pours all her fanciful romantic longings into flowery prose that eventually attracts the attention of a well-heeled London publisher (Sam Neill); fame soon follows, washing over her like a tidal wave.
Based on a novel by British author Elizabeth Taylor.
