Madame Bovary

"Breathes life into a classic story... a must for lovers of period drama and stunning visuals." Based on the novel by Gustave Flaubert.

"Sophia Barthes’ Madame Bovary is a beautiful period adaptation of Gustav Flaubert’s novel that deals with its complicated heroine in a way that is both understanding and honest. The cinematography truly stands out as the star, making this film into a visual delight.

"The story follows the new wife of village doctor, Emma Bovary (Mia Wasikowska), who finds herself bored of the limited entertainments of a 19th century French provincial town. Her disappointment in her situation soon drives her to live outside the appropriate rules of society. Wasikowska is allowed in this film to stretch her trademark understated performance, and she embraces both the initial quiet resignation and the later defiant fury that defines the character.

"Wasikowska isn’t the only one making an impression, however. Rhys Ifans is clearly having fun as the villainous merchant Monsieur Lheureux, tricking characters into self-destruction with some serious smooth-talking, whilst the great Paul Giamatti has a small role as Monsieur Homais.

"A great asset to the film lies in its visual appearance. From an exhilarating hunt scene to the stunning French setting, the director and cinematographer manage to capture an ethereal impression of their surroundings.The costumes are sumptuously designed too.

"Madame Bovary breathes life into a classic story, with a delicate hand and a careful eye. Not only is it a must for lovers of period drama and stunning visuals, but many viewers will find some empathy in a character who is willing to take into her own hands a change from a mundane existence." - Empire Magazine
