MADAME BOVARY is an upcoming drama film directed by Sophie Barthes (Cold Souls) who co-wrote the screenplay with Rose Barreneche, based on the novel of the same name by Gustave Flaubert. The film stars Mia Wasikowska, Rhys Ifan, Ezra Miller, Logan Marshall-Green, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, and Paul Giamatti.
Set in Normandy, France, MADAME BOVARY is Gustave Flaubert’s classic story of Emma Bovary (Wasikowska), a young beauty who impulsively marries small-town doctor, Charles Bovary (Lloyd-Hughes), to leave her father’s pig farm far behind. But after being introduced to the glamorous world of high society, she soon becomes bored with her stodgy husband and mundane life, and seeks prestige and excitement outside the bonds of marriage.
