Description

Gustave Flaubert’s masterpiece finally gets an adaptation by a female director. Sophie Barthes takes this decidedly feminist material and creates a visually mesmerizing and narratively enthralling movie from this classic work.

Mia Wasikowska is perfectly cast as Emma Bovary, the beautiful and bookish young wife of a dull country doctor. As Emma dreams of larger things in life, a series of men fatefully crosses her path. Barthes and her crew breathes new life into this gripping and still very contemporary tale of oppression, desire and tragedy.
