English rose Gemma Bovery (Gemma Arterton, Tamara Drewe) and her husband (Jason Flemyng, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) have moved to a rustic cottage in Normandy in pursuit of the French dream. Their new neighbour, bored local baker Martin (Fabrice Luchini, In the House), is a romanticist and devotee of Flaubert. He becomes transfixed by his very own ‘Madame Bovary’, and takes a watchful interest in her life. When a dashing young man catches Gemma's eye, Martin begins to fear that she will fall to the same fate as her literary namesake. Directed by BAFTA-nominee Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel).
