To say “Elle” is dividing critics and audiences would be an understatement. One of the year’s most controversial films, the thriller proves the great Paul Verhoeven is still a master of provocation and that Isabelle Huppert is one of the very best actresses we’ve got.
Huppert plays a rape victim who, instead of reporting the crime, begins a very twisted relationship with her assailant, but the character’s complex history makes her motives ambiguously self-destructive. “Elle” is a conversation starter like no other film this year as it defies description and expectations at every turn.
The thriller is now playing in New York City and Los Angeles, and to celebrate the release IndieWire is giving one reader the chance to win the official film poster signed by none other than Paul Verhoeven and Isabelle Huppert.
