A Love StoryBook - 2010
In the early 1800's, 12-year-old Mary Anning, a cabinet-maker's daughter, found the first intact skeleton of a prehistoric dolphin-like creature, and spent a year chipping it from the soft cliffs near Lyme Regis, England. Henry de la Beche, son of a gentry family and living with his elegant, cynical mother in Lyme Regis, pursued his passion for drawing and painting the landscapes and fossils of the area. One morning on an expedition to see an extraordinary discovery - a giant fossil - he meets a young woman unlike anyone he has ever met.
