The period drama premiered at the Telluride Film Festival, and plays in Toronto Sept. 10.
Director Sophie Barthes’ Madame Bovary has landed a U.S. home with the newly reorganized Millennium Entertainment.
Starring Mia Wasikowska, the movie made its premiere at the Telluride Film Festival and will play at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 10. Madame Bovary, which has drawn mixed reviews, also stars Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans and Ezra Miller.
Felipe Marino adapted the screenplay from Gustave Flaubert’s classic novel of the same name with Barthes.
Wasikowska plays Emma Bovary, a young, beautiful woman from northern France who marries the town doctor in order to escape a life of swine farming. But she soon grows tired of her husband and enters into a series of ill-fated love affairs.
WME helped secure financing for the film and represents U.S. rights, while Radiant Films International is handling foreign sales.
The deal for Madame Bovary comes days after the management team of Millennium Entertainment, led by Bill Lee, and private investment firm Virgo Investment Group bought out the stake owned by Avi Lerner’s NuImage/Millennium Entertainment. Millennium Entertainment will be renamed in the coming weeks.
Marino and Joe Neurauter produced Madame Bovary in association with Barthes via her Aden Film banner and Aleph Motion Picture’s Jaime Mateus-Tique.

Below you can read first review of Madam Bovary where Mia plays main character. Also, I have added to the gallery another still from the movie so check it out.
It is not prerequisite that the period costume drama needs a hook, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. Joe Wright’s stylish “Anna Karenina” dazzled with a theatrical approach, and Andrea Arnold’s “Wuthering Heights” employed an austere commitment to form coupled with an expressively Malick-ian appreciation of nature. Gracefully pitched acting can also be enough (see James Gray’s “The Immigrant”), but unfortunately for Sophie Barthe, her adaptation of “Madame Bovary” is largely bereft of these qualities in any compelling form. Instead, the movie is delivered in a restrained, far-too measured tone that is often flat and enervating.
There have been countless TV and film adaptations of “Madame Bovary.” In cinema, Vincente Minnelli, Albert Ray, Claude Chabrol and Jean Renoir have all had a go at Gustave Flaubert’s debut novel, but rarely has Flaubert’s sensibilities been rendered for the screen by a female director. But feminist thoughtfulness (or lack thereof) isn’t really the issue with this film. Barthe’s problem with her debut “Cold Souls” was a brilliant concept enacted in a lackluster manner. “Madame Bovary” attempts to course-correct this error, but apart from methodically rendering a beatific French countryside milieu with precision, the movie cannot translate much of any captivating or moving spark. “Madame Bovary” follows the story pretty much to the letter, telling the tale of a disillusioned young woman bound by the constrictions of marriage and duty but who yearns for much more. It’s a very familiar premise, whether you have or haven’t read the book.
