17-year-old Emelia (Jessica Brown Findlay), who believes she is following in the footsteps of her great-grandfather Sir Arthur Conan Doyle by pursuing a writing career, takes a job at a B&B owned by former writer Jonathan Fischer (Sebastian Koch, Black Book) and run by his wife Joa (Julia Ormond, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). Sensing emerging talent in Emelia, Jonathan begins to tutor her, leading to a relationship that soon develops into a secret affair. Meanwhile, bookish daughter Beth Fischer (Felicity Jones, Like Crazy) finds an unlikely friend in the free-spirited Emelia and begins to reveal to her the details of the Fischer family’s troubled past. Now unless she can extricate herself from her relationship with Jonathan, Emelia just might destroy what solidarity the family has left. A tender and poignant comedy, ALBATROSS shows how the most unusual of circumstances can teach us to stand on our own two feet.
