After the long winter, when the brutal chill of February has hit and the novelty of Valentine’s Day has passed, it might be just the perfect time for some good, old fashioned bodice ripping.
In this new trailer for “In Secret,” Elizabeth Olsen and Oscar Isaac plot and scheme and fall into one another’s beds, causing quite the 19th century scandal. Formerly titled “Terese,” the film is based on Emile Zola’s novel, “Therese Raquin” a cautionary tale of obsession, adultery and revenge set in 1860s Paris.
Terese (Olsen) is married off to her sickly cousin Camille (Tom Felton of the “Harry Potter” franchise) and finds herself trapped in a marriage devoid of emotional and physical love. When she meets her husband’s childhood friend Laurent, their obvious attraction leads to a passionate affair with tragic consequences. Jessica Lange plays Madame Raquin, Camille’s mother and Terese’ aunt, who discovers the lovers’ secrets.
“In Secret” is director Charlie Stratton’s debut feature and hits theaters Feb. 21. Check out the scintillating trailer below.
