A widow, a village vicar, and a mythical beast...are the rumors true?
Claire Danes and Tom Hiddleston star in an Apple TV+ film The Essex Serpent based on the award-winning novel by Sarah Perry.
Set in Victorian England featuring a star-studded cast led by Danes and Hiddleston, and including Frank Dillane, Clémence Poésy, and Hayley Squires, The Essex Serpent follows London widow Cora Seaborne (Danes) who moves to Essex to investigate reports of a mythical serpent. She forms an unlikely bond with the village vicar (Hiddleston), but when tragedy strikes, locals accuse her of attracting the creature.
The Essex Serpent premieres May 13 on Apple TV+.
