Madame Bovary (2014)
First screened in June 2015
Director: Sophie Barthes. Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Ezra Miller, Rhys Ifans, Logan Marshall-Green, Paul Giamatti, Laura Carmichael, Olivier Gourmet, Luke Tittensor, Richard Cordery. Screenplay: Felipe Marino and Sophie Barthes (based on the novel by Gustave Flaubert).

Twitter Capsule: Parekh brings cool, inspired eye to characters, place. Younger Emma a plus. Still, musters too little point of view.

VOR:   Another Bovary, sturdy but not urgent. Wasikowska's youth and stern introversion shift its center in interesting ways. Elsewhere, passes quickly from shaky to sturdy and back.
