Kate Winslet in Lyme based film.

Lyme Regis has yet another film being made in the town and this time headed by Kate Winslet who takes the role of Mary Anning in this Francis Lee film Ammonite. The film concentrates on the fictitious relationship between Mary Anning and a woman played by Saoires Ronan. It is a great shame that the film writer could not just concentrate on the facts and society in which Mary Anning made her discoveries. Bed and breakfast and hotel guests have been much entertained by the filming as much of the town has been transformed into a film set and the Coastal Ketch the Irene spent several days in the harbour. At 100ft it is the biggest boat that I have seen in the habour.
