Review: Madame Bovary

Rich in Dark Beauty

This movie is a visual feast for the senses. It is pure escapism at it's finest. Really enjoyed this movie, seen at a cosy little boutique cinema. Interesting portrayal of what life was like at that time for wives and women. It does plod along quietly in places but that in my view is part of it's charm, transporting you to another time and place. Very thought provoking. Mia Wasikowska stirring vulnerability and Rhys Ifans callous greed heightened the drama and suspense. Having not read the book was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. It is dark, dramatic and beautifully crafted!
