If you’ve been feeling like you need a little more nutrition with respect to your otherwise blockbuster-heavy cinematic diet, maybe “Madame Bovary” is worth digesting. The adaptation of Gustave Flaubert‘s novel, starring Mia Wasikowska, debuted at the Telluride Film Festival last fall, and hit Toronto and London not long after, but failed to make much of an impression. Anyway, it looks like its now headed to theaters, as the first trailer has arrived.
Co-starring Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans and Ezra Miller with Sophie Barthes (“Cold Souls“) directing, the movie tells the story of a country girl who seemingly marries into the gentry with a doctor. But she soon discovers he’s got a PhD in Being No Fun, and the Madame takes up a romance with a dashing young suitor. Inevitably, corsets, lace and oh so many dramas ensue. Yet our review from Telluride didn’t think much of the movie, describing an “uninspired narrative and disengaged performances.”
No exact date yet, but Alchemy will release the picture in cinemas in 2015 in the U.S. Watch below. [Film Divider]
