After the wedding, it turns out that he has an aversion to her body and can not make love to her. After the deep disappointment Fanning heroine falls in love with the artist John Millais (Sturridge) and begins to ensure that the marriage to Ruskin repealed. Effie entered the history of the world of the feminist movement as one of the first women who made it. In 1855, a year after breaking up with Ruskin, she married Millais.
