February has come and gone in the blink of an eye, and once again the month exhibited one of the most peculiar phenomena in the world – no, not a leap year, but cramming the the largest number of terrible movies into the shortest month possible. Peter Travers is, of course, on the case, breaking out his prized scum bucket to dispose of the worst of the worst, and for everyone's sake he's limited himself to just ten awful February films.
First into the scum bucket is Vampire Academy, which Travers »

Chicago – If stories of Prince Charmings and the liberation from wicked stepmothers are fairy tales, than “In Secret” is the stuff of nightmares, where marriage is not just a prison sentence, but an unlucky life is as well. Based on the novel “Therese Raquin” by Emile Zola as published in 1867, this film’s element of ownership may be considered an artifact in 2014. But thankfully this adaptation earns its own pertinence, as a dark period thriller with real doses of hormonally fueled bad decisions.
Zola’s title character is played in this latest film adaptation by Elizabeth Olsen, who will soon assume mega-star status considering her upcoming appearances in “Godzilla” and “The Avengers: Age of Ultron”. Therese is a woman whose life is doomed from the day she is abandoned as a young girl by her father to live with her aunt, Madame Raquin (Jessica Lange), and the woman’s »

Sneak Peek writer/director Charlie Stratton's 'erotic thriller' "In Secret" (aka "Thérèse"), based on the 1867 classic novel "Thérèse Raquin" by author Émile Zola, starring Elizabeth Olsen ("Avengers: Age Of Ultron"), Tom Felton, Oscar Isaac and Jessica Lange, opening February 21, 2014:
"...set in the lower echelons of 1860's Paris, 'Thérèse Raquin' (Olsen) is a sexually repressed beautiful young woman, trapped in a loveless marriage to her frail cousin 'Camille' (Felton), thanks to her domineering aunt 'Madame Raquin' (Lange).
"Thérèse spends her days confined behind the counter of a small shop and her evenings watching 'Madame' play dominoes with an eclectic group.
"But after she meets her husband's alluring friend 'Laurent LeClaire' (Isaac), she embarks on an illicit affair that leads to tragic consequences..."

In Secret is an old-fashioned bodice-ripper – a period potboiler about adulterous lust, premeditated murder, and poetic justice. Though told in broad, Harlequin-novel strokes, it is well done with fine direction and exceptional performances. Set in 1860’s Paris, In Secret tells the tale of young Thérèse (Elizabeth Olsen), who has been brought up by her aunt, Madame Raquin (Jessica Lange) and more or less forced to marry her pasty wimp cousin Camille (Tom Felton). She has resigned herself to a dull gray loveless life working in a small fabric shop owned by her aunt/mother-in-law in a grimy section of Paris while her husband toils away as an accountant. Thérèse is ready to satisfy the sexual desires bottled in her, but the whiny Camille would rather go to the zoo and be babied by his mama. When he brings his wife flowers, he warns “Don’t tell mother. She’ll be »

Title: In Secret Director: Charlie Stratton Starring: Elizabeth Olsen, Jessica Lange, Tom Felton, Oscar Isaac. Emile Zola’s significant novel ‘Thérèse Raquin,’ first published in 1867, was adapted for the silver screen by Charlie Stratton, and screened in the Special Presentation section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Stratton portrays with great sensitivity the nineteenth century romantic melodrama of the ill-matched cousins who are brought up together, married to one another by an imperious mother, and are doomed to a tragic fate after the unhappy young wife embarks on a passionate affair. ‘In Secret’ is set in the lower echelons of 1860s Paris, Therese Raquin (Elizabeth Olsen), a sexually repressed [ Read More ]

What occurs in the new film In Secret feels less like a natural progression of logical events, instead of something more pre-ordained and unnecessarily fatalistic. The characters existing inside of this turgid tragedy do not act freely, but as if guided by an invisible puppet master. Even though the film is the latest adaptation of Emile Zola’s novel Thérèse Raquin, it’s not that the story here unfolds dully because the basic plot points have been echoed many times in the past. Instead, it’s that there’s a deficiency of life amidst the gloom, even in the first half, which is presumably defined by its leading characters’ intertwining passion.

R, 1 Hr., 47 Mins.
Who knew Émile Zola had so much in common with James M. Cain? In this wicked, The Postman Always Rings Twice-style riff on the 19th-century bodice ripper Thérèse Raquin, Elizabeth Olsen plays a sexually repressed wife who falls for a Parisian charmer (Oscar Isaac) and plots to murder her drip of a husband (Tom Felton). There’s never any doubt that this will end badly for the lovers. But just in case, Jessica Lange as the fire-breathing mother-in-law seals the deal. B —Chris Nashawaty

Almost a pop history of Western culture's relationship to female orgasm, Charlie Stratton's In Secret is a spirited zip through Zola's Thérèse Raquin, a sex-and-sin morality tale of the sort that has been the template for the last decade of Woody Allen dramas. Unlike those, In Secret boasts vigor and thematic richness, that feeling of artists expressing something vital rather than just banging out that year's script from the drawer.
That's especially true in the first half, which digs into ennui dating back to the dawn of monogamy: In 1860s Paris, a young woman gets impressed into marriage with a dope (Tom Felton) who, when he actually bothers to take her to bed, goes at her with the same dull passion he might apply to eating oatmeal.

The rainy weather didn’t dampen the spirits of the cast of Roadside Attractions and Ld Entertainment’s romantic thriller “In Secret” as they gathered for the Los Angeles premiere on Feb. 6 at the ArcLight Hollywood.
Stratton said he was a fan of the book even before there was talk of a movie and called this project “a dream come true.” He also discussed the cast and the opportune timing that allowed actors like “Inside Llewyn Davis” star Oscar Isaac to work on the indie film.
“It was wild because everybody was at a specific moment in their career,” Stratton explained. “Oscar had just wrapped the Coen brothers movie and a week later he was on our set… And then you have »

Rest assured, Harry Potter fans, Tom Felton is still traveling in style. Compared to Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe, Tom has remained relatively out of the spotlight since the final Harry Potter film hit theaters in 2011. However, the actor looked like he was doing just fine car-wise when he hopped out of a gray Lamborghini Aventador in La on Thursday. Tom was in town to attend a screening of his new film, In Secret, alongside costar Elizabeth Olsen. The period piece, which also stars Inside Llewyn Davis's Oscar Issac, follows a young woman (played by Elizabeth) who is locked in a loveless marriage with her cousin (portrayed by Tom). Check out the trailer for In Secret before it hits theaters on Feb. 21. View Slideshow › »

The film is directed by BAFTA winner Amma Asante, written by Misan Sagay and produced by Damian Jones whose previous credits include Oscar-winner The Iron Lady. It marks Asante’s second feature after A Way of Life in 2004.
Belle is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Wilkinson) and his wife (Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, but the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing.
Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for »
