Mia Wasikowska new drama MADAME BOVARY is in theatres and On Demand now. Directed by Sophie Barthes, based on a novel by Gustave Flaubert, MADAME BOVARY is a masterpiece. Set in Normandy, France, Emma Bovary (Mia Wasikowska) is a beautiful young woman who impulsively marries a small town doctor named Charles Bovary (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) to advance her social status and leave her father’s pig farm far behind her. After a taste of living among high society, she quickly becomes rather bored with her husband and normal life and starts to look for excitement outside of her marriage.
The film also stars Paul Giamatti, Ezra Miller, Rhys Ifans, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Logan Marshall-Green and Laura Carmichael. With a screenplay by Rose Barreneche and Sophie Barthes, this adaptation, unlike others, sticks almost fully to Emma’s point of view.
While MADAME BOVARY has been adapted several times in the past, on both film and TV, this marks the first adaptation with a woman at the helm. With its gorgeous settings and divine costuming MADAME BOVARY whisks you away to another time following fiction’s most famous adulteress.
