Here's the first trailer for Sophie Barthes Madame Bovary from Film Divider:
Madame Bovary is directed by Sophie Barthes (Cold Souls) and written by Felipe Marino, adapting the classic book of the same name. Marriage is at first a dream for young Emma Bovary, keen to embrace this new stage in her life and be the perfect partner to her country doctor husband. But she is too spirited a woman to be contained and it’s not long before a combination of loneliness, boredom and naïveté impel her beyond the boundaries of society. Mia Wasikowska leads the film in the title role with Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans and Ezra Miller also starring in the film which Alchemy releases later this year.
