Synopsis


Madame Bovary
This period film by Director Sophie Barthes is the latest adaptation of French writer Gustave Flaubert's 1856 debut novel about a woman teetering on the edge of disaster as she carries on illicit affairs in an attempt to suspend the boredom of an Ill-conceived marriage. Emma Rouault (Mia Wasikowska) finds herself disillusioned with her bourgeois existence as a provincial doctor's wife after her romantic notions of love begin to fall away with the realization that her husband is a dullard. Becoming entangled in a series of affairs, Emma will be forced to pay a price for the choices she's made. Also starring Ezra Miller, Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans and Henry Lloyd-Hughes. ~ Erin Demers, Rovi

    Period piece about a woman who marries a boring doctor and moves to the country. She is not happy with her life and he is to focused on his practice to notice. She begins having affairs and gets involved with a merchant (who is much smarter than she thinks she is) trying to buy things to fill a very large emotional void. The costumes and scenery are amazing. Music very haunting. There is not a lot of dialog in this movie it is very "artsy." Love scenes not long enough for you to even invest in the characters, of which you won't like any. But a good movie to watch that will hopefully get people to want to crack open some classical literature.

    The classic tragic romance of Madame Bovary, told in a way destined to make younger viewers feel pity for the main character, while making older viewers want to dopeslap her. Simply put, living beyond one's means carries a risk and penalty beyond the ability to set right. Couple that with bad libidinal impulse control and voila!

    This movie OK. This movie is about a young woman who marries a doctor. Emma Bovary is not happy in her marriage, she has affairs with other men. She also lives beyond her means, with clothes and furniture that they cannot afford.

    A great tale about French society and the roles of women of the past. The cliff hanger at the end makes for excellent discussion and interpretation.
