Mia Wasikowska Is Tempted By Corsetry In First Trailer For Madame Bovary

19 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The contemporary taste for corseted melodramas continues to go unsatisfied, as more and more films hit theaters based on classic novels that tell tales of social mores, adultery, and entrapment in whale bone and hoop skirts. Mia Wasikowska looks good in those clothes, just like Nicole Kidman before her, and so continues to be the go-to actress to play waifish young women of a bygone era. Her latest performance is in Madame Bovary, an adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s classic novel.

Madame Bovary tells the story of a woman who marries a doctor and promptly falls for another man. Trapped in a loveless marriage (is there any other during the Victorian period?), Madame Bovary soon finds herself dreaming of a different life. Things are not going to end well, however, as any literature student can tell you.

The trailer for Madame Bovary makes certain that we know that this is »

The Witch | 2015 Sundance Film Festival Review

21 hours ago | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Better the Devil You Know: Eggers’ Debut Marinates with Menace

Easily the most profoundly unnerving film to play at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, the directorial debut of Robert Eggers is a historical horror film set in 1630 New England, predating the infamous Salem Witch Trials, one of this young country’s earliest grotesque evil chapters. But unlike, say, the dramatic sensation of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, Eggers’ makes The Witch an odd mixture of fanatical religious paranoia and actual supernatural horror, which creates a fascinating, successful hybrid. Much has been made of the film’s close attention to period detail, enriching the climate as the film slowly tightens into a constricted trap, but impressive performances and just the right touch of the otherworldly make this infectiously effective.

Opening with a close-up of Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy) in her Sunday best, we find her father William (Ralph Ineson) facing some sort of »

Watch Julianne Moore Lose It in Maps to the Stars

30 January 2015 10:20 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

By the time we meet fading actress Havana Segrand (played by Julianne Moore) in this exclusive clip from David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars, she's already been through the wringer: Havana has been embarrassingly rejected for a remake of her mother's most famous film, and creepy visions of her mom have the loose-screw actress into the arms of self-help guru Stafford Weiss (John Cusack). Luckily, Havana has one time-tested method for coping with all the shit the universe has heaved upon her: She'll cathartically upbraid her assistant, Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), tasking the girl with a ridiculous laundry list of home duties and pills to be procured until Havana finally feels like some semblance of order has been restored in the universe. Here's a little bit of Moore's sublime, Cannes-winning comic performance for you; Focus World will finally release Maps to the Stars in theaters and on demand February 27, just »

Madame Bovary Trailer: Mia Wasikowska Sells Us on Another Costume Drama

30 January 2015 9:35 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It may not have received tremendous reviews out of the festivals last fall, but Sophie Barthes‘s Madame Bovary has a number of things going for it. On the top of the list is that it stars the wonderful Mia Wasikowska and may just be one of our last chances of watching her in a costume drama that isn’t Alice in Wonderland 2 for a while. Wasikowska has otherwise been on a roll lately with her varied roles since the first Alice movie five years ago. In 2014 alone, we got to see her in Only Lovers Left AliveThe DoubleTracks and Maps to the Stars. If we didn’t also have the opportunity to catch Bovary at Telluride or Toronto, then 2015 is sure to be another good year for us fans of the young actress, between this and Guillermo del Toro’s period-piece horror film Crimson Peak. In the movie at hand, another »

Watch: Mia Wasikowska is Tempted by Passion in 'Madame Bovary' Trailer

30 January 2015 7:38 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It has been over 60 years since Hollywood has made a big-screen adaptation of Gustave Flaubert's 1856 "Madame Bovary." As one of the most beloved literary classics of all time, this is a whale of a project, especially for second-time director Sophie Barthes ("Cold Souls").  "Madame Bovary" stars the lovely Mia Wasikowska as the unhappily married titular character living in 19th century France. Emma Bovary searches desperately for a spark in her life after marrying distant country doctor Charles Bovary. Wasikowska seems a natural choice for the lead role, as she has already portrayed literary heroines with strength and vivacity in "Alice in Wonderland" (2010) and "Jane Eyre" (2011).   In attempts to escape the lonely dullness of her married life, Bovary conducts love affairs with several men, and shops so vigorously that her husband falls into debt. As The Playlist reported, "The adaptation »

Exclusive: Julianne Moore Behind-The-Scenes In ‘Maps To The Stars’ – On DVD & Blu-ray February 2nd

30 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Like many of us, I’m a huge fan of Julianne Moore’s work and the dark mind of David Cronenberg so today we merge the two, in a sense, and give you a little exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at Julianne Moore in Maps To The Stars, out to own on February 2nd on Blu-ray and DVD.

Maps To The Stars follows a secret-filled Hollywood family on the verge of implosion. The Weiss family is the archetypal Hollywood dynasty; father Stafford (John Cusack) who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals and mother Cristina (Olivia Williams) mostly looks after the career of their child star son Benjie (Evan Bird). One of Stafford’s clients, Havana (Moore), is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother, Clarice, a star in the 60s. Clarice is dead now and visions of her come to haunt Havana at night. »

'Madame Bovary' Trailer Starring Mia Wasikowska

29 January 2015 5:33 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gustave Flaubert's timeless novel Madame Bovary comes to life with the first trailer for this adaptation. The book has been brought to the big screen several times before, including a 1991 adaptation starring Isabelle Huppert and a 2000 film starring Frances O'Connor and Hugh Bonneville. The novel was even adapted into a four-part TV mini-series back in 1975. Mia Wasikowska stars as the title character, adding to her list of adaptations including Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, Fyodor Dostoyevsky's The Double and Charlotte Bront&#235's Jane Eyre.

Set in Normandy, France, Madame Bovary is Gustave Flaubert's classic story of Emma Bovary (Mia Wasikowska), a young beauty who impulsively marries small-town doctor, Charles Bovary (Henry Lloyd-Hughes), to leave her father's pig farm far behind. But after being introduced to the glamorous world of high society, she soon becomes bored with her stodgy husband and mundane life, and seeks prestige and excitement outside the bonds of marriage. »

Mia Wasikowska Brings Classic Character Madame Bovary to Life

29 January 2015 4:25 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Hey, did you read Madame Bovary in high school? Then this trailer for the movie adaptation might give you English-class déjà vu. Mia Wasikowska stars as the titular lead of Gustave Flaubert's novel, a recently married woman who finds that her new life is immensely depressing. She starts relationships with two men (Ezra Miller and Logan Marshall-Green), and her life slowly begins taking a turn for the worst. Aside from the beautiful costumes and backgrounds, the highlight of the trailer has to be seeing The Perks of Being a Wallflower's Miller in a 19th-century suit. Rhys Ifans, Paul Giamatti, and Henry Lloyd-Hughes all costar, and the film is set for a Summer release. Take a look, and make sure you've read up on all the books becoming movies in 2015! »

Watch: Marriage Is A Bummer For Mia Wasikowska In First Trailer For 'Madame Bovary'

29 January 2015 10:09 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you've been feeling like you need a little more nutrition with respect to your otherwise blockbuster-heavy cinematic diet, maybe "Madame Bovary" is worth digesting. The adaptation of Gustave Flaubert's novel, starring Mia Wasikowska, debuted at the Telluride Film Festival last fall, and hit Toronto and London not long after, but failed to make much of an impression. Anyway, it looks like its now headed to theaters, as the first trailer has arrived. Co-starring Henry Lloyd-HughesPaul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans and Ezra Miller with Sophie Barthes ("Cold Souls") directing, the movie tells the story of a country girl who seemingly marries into the gentry with a doctor. But she soon discovers he's got a PhD in Being No Fun, and the Madame takes up a romance with a dashing young suitor. Inevitably, corsets, lace and oh so many dramas ensue. Yet our review from Telluride didn't think much of the movie, »
