Gustave Flaubert's controversial novel is brought to life in this classic adaptation by Claude Chabrol starring the "ravishingly erotic" (Newsday) Isabelle Huppert.
Bored with the banalities and emptiness of provincial life in 19th century France, the fiercely sensual Emma Bovary runs up ruinous debts and purses scandalous affairs with passionate abandon. But when her excessive behavior catches up to her, the lives of everyone around her are endangered in this breathtaking film that Rolling Stone hailed as "among the year's best and most provocative films."
