First Teaser Trailer for Anne Fontaine’s Gemma Bovery with Gemma Arterton

3 June 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Returning behind the camera following last year’s Adore, the BAFTA-nominated Anne Fontaine is back with another adaptation, this time setting her sights on Posy Simmonds’ graphic novel, Gemma Bovery, first serialised in The Guardian.

The film is set to be released in France this September, and the dialogue-free first teaser trailer and posters have been launched, along with a trio of stills.

Courtesy of Amazon, here’s the synopsis for the original novel.

Gemma is the bored, pretty second wife of Charlie Bovery, the reluctant stepmother of his children and the bête-noire of his ex-wife. Gemma’s sudden windfall and distaste for London take them across the Channel to Normandy, where the charms of French country living soon wear off.

Is it a coincidence that Gemma Bovery has a name rather like Flaubert’s notorious heroine? Is it by chance that, like Madame Bovary, Gemma is bored, adulterous, and a bad credit risk? »
