ELLE
France
Directed by Paul Verhoeven
In French with English subtitles
Drama, Thriller
130min
Rated 18A: sexual violence

Following  a  brutal  rape,  successful  businesswoman,  Michèle  Leblanc,  takes  a  bath,  gets dressed,  and  joins  friends  for  dinner.  Instead  of reporting  the  crime,  she  hunts  down  the  ski-masked stranger herself. After repeated brushes with the brute, she becomes further entangled in a dangerous cat and mouse game that spirals out of control, threatening to consume them both. While the attack changes Michèle's life forever, she refuses to be victimized. Though not for  the  faint  of  heart,  this  erotic,  violent,  perverse  and  oddly  empowering  revenge  tale  is anchored by a breathtaking performance from Isabelle Huppert.

ELLE IS A COMPLEX PSYCHOLOGICAL PORTRAIT OF AN UNUSUAL WOMAN…THE SHEER BRILLIANCE AND MASTERY OF HUPPERT’S CONTROLLED, MULTIFACETED PERFORMANCE MAKES THE FILM A MOVIE THAT WILL INSPIRE DEBATE FOR DECADES TO COME”
-Time Out

“ELLE IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER, A STRANGELY DRY-EYED MELODRAMA, A KINKY SEX FARCE AND, PERHAPS MOST PROVOCATIVELY, A SAVAGE COMEDY OF BOURGEOIS MANNERS. MOSTLY, THOUGH — INARGUABLY— IT IS A PLATFORM FOR THE ASTONISHING, ALMOST TERRIFYING TALENT OF ISABELLE HUPPERT.”
