The Brontë Sisters and their brother Branwell Bronte

"Les soeurs Brontë" ("The Brontë Sisters") is a fascinating film based on Emily, Charlotte and Ann Bronte directed by André Téchiné,Starring Isabelle Adjani, Isabelle Huppert, and Marie-France Pisier. 

Unlike In Search of the Brontes, André Téchiné gives a poetic picture of the three sisters and more surprisingly portrays their brother Branwell Bronte as a tender, brilliant poet, artist and writer living under the shadow of his sisters.
