Madame Bovary is another film version of the classic novel by Gustave Flaubert, and with Mia Wasikowska (The Double) in the title role as Emma Bovary, it’s the fifth time in her career in which she’s appeared in a period drama set in the 19th Century.
Unfortunately, for me, period dramas really aren’t my bag. If they’re your bag, then the novel has been adapted by Sophie Barthes (who also directs) and Felipe Marino (the latter under the name of Rose Barreneche), and it also starts Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey), Ezra Miller (We Need To Talk About Kevin), Rhys Ifans, Paul Giamatti, Logan Marshall-Green, Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Shameless‘ Luke Tittensor.
Madame Bovary doesn’t have a released date yet either in the UK or US, but it will be some time this year.
