TIFF - MADAME BOVERY

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2 7:30 PM to THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3 2:00 PM

 

 

A pretty, bookish country girl marries a dull doctor so as to escape her father’s pig farm. When marital ennui proves unbearable, she commences a series of love affairs in the hope of ascending the social ladder, but every step upward only brings her closer to what will prove a devastating fall. This is the essential plot of Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, a novel that, even a century and a half after its publication, maintains its grip on the imaginations of countless readers. Now ferociously talented director Sophie Barthes (Cold Souls) has created a vital new cinematic adaptation of Flaubert’s masterwork.
