GEMMA BOVERY

UK DVD/ Blu-Ray release 8 February 2016 Dir: Anne Fontaine

Cast: Gemma Arterton, Fabrice Luchini, Jason Flemyng, Neils Schneider

Gemma Arterton stars in this amusing and sexy modern-day re-working of Flaubert’s 19th century novel, Madame Bovary.

Having moved to a rustic farm with her older husband (Flemyng), Gemma (Arterton) soon tires of their ‘simpler’ life and finds distraction in a torrid affair with a handsome young aristocrat (Schneider). Meanwhile, Martin (Luchini), a local baker and lover of literature, becomes besotted with Gemma, but also fears she may suffer the same fate as the heroine in his favourite novel.

Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Posy Simmonds, and co-starring Fabrice Luchini (In the House) and Jason Flemyng (Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels) Gemma Bovery is directed by BAFTA-Nominee Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel).
