Mia Wasikowska in Madame Bovary

Having already tackled Alice in Wonderland for Tim Burton and Jane Eyre for Cary Fukunaga, Mia Wasikowska has found herself yet another adaptation of a literary classic about a young woman looking for more.

Directed by Sophie Barthes and based on the novel by Gustave FlaubertMadame Bovary stars Wasikowska as Emma. She marries a small-town doctor and then becomes bored with her provincial life. Her drive for glamour, excitement, and passion send her down a self-destructive road, as she engages in extramarital affairs and racks up massive debts.

Henry Lloyd-Hughes plays Emma’s husband, Ezra Miller and Logan Marshall-Green her paramours, and Rhys Ifans a local merchant. Paul Giamatti, Olivier Gourmet, and Laura Carmichael are also in the mix. Watch the Madame Bovary trailer after the jump.  Read More »
