An unexpected delight
23 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was not familiar with actress Joyce Compton, who plays Sheila in this modern adaptation of 'Madame Bovary.'

I am not all that familiar with 'Madame Bovary,' to be honest, so I won't attempt to judge the adaptation.

Sheila, the voluptuous ditsy diva, and Stockmar, the aristocratic European writer: what a pair! The little love nest in the country that is their hideaway. The squeaky-clean athletic husband who is being cuckolded. Really, are we watching 'Madame Bovary' or Telemundo?

The main characters in this drama are well cast. The script is tight; if you don't know the story, you'll appreciate that. If you do expect Flaubert-level dialogue, you are out of luck!

I enjoyed watching this film, so short and simple compared to the grander production it could be. I consider this a gem.
