Paul Verhoeven's Elle

"Nutjobs, I can handle. My specialty." Sony Classics has debuted an official US trailer for Paul Verhoeven's latest film, a shocking but remarkable thriller called Elle, starring French actress Isabelle Huppert as the head of a video game company. The plot, and I'm not even exaggerating, involves her being raped in her own home by a masked intruder. She tries to figure out who it was and hunt him down, in return, and teach him a lesson. Also featuring Laurent Lafitte, Anne Consigny, Charles Berling, Virginie Efira, Judith Magre and Christian Berkel. I saw this film at the Cannes Film Festival when it first premiered and it's fantastic - dark and devious and kind of messed up, but actually really fun and funny. Huppert is totally amazing and kicks ass in this role. It's sure to spark some controversy, but it's also a damn fine film. Enjoy.

Here's the official US trailer (+ international poster) for Paul Verhoeven's Elle, originally from Yahoo:

Paul Verhoeven's Elle

Michèle (Huppert) seems indestructible. Head of a successful video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle's life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game – a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control. Elle is directed by Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven, of The 4th Man, RoboCop, Total Recall, Basic Instinct, Showgirls, Starship Troopers, Hollow Man, Black Book and Tricked previously. The screenplay is written by David Birke, based on the novel by Philippe Djian. The film first premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Sony Classics will release Verhoeven's Elle in select US theaters starting October 14th this fall. Thoughts?
