Therese Desqueyroux

Director Claude Miller's final film stars Audrey Tautou as the eponymous Thérèse, a cultured and intelligent woman who enters into an arranged marriage in rural 1920s France. Bound and restrained by a traditional society, Thérèse's avant-garde ideas clash with local conventions and in order to break free from the fate imposed upon her she will resort to tragically extreme measures... Anchored by a performance of subtlety and depth from Tautou, ably matched by Gilles Lellouche as her husband, "Thérèse Desqueyroux" is a breathtaking period drama of emotional, suspenseful and lavish cinematic scope.
