The trailer is in for the Audrey Tautou drama “Thérèse” (not to be confused with the Elizabeth Olsen-fronted period piece of the same name). The film is the late director Claude Miller’s last.
The French drama is based on the 1927 novel by François Mauriac about a woman cut from the same cloth as Madame Bovary and Anna Karenina, stifled by her loveless marriage and dull provincial life. Thérèse married for convenience, hoping she could feign contentment, but the weight of female repression and social customs coupled with the arrogance of her husband eventually drives her to grab a chance at love where she can find it, even if it means taking reckless action.
