Set in the lower depths of 1860s Paris, Therese is a tale of obsessive love, adultery and revenge based on Emile Zola’s scandalous novel, Thérèse Raquin. Therese (Elizabeth Olsen of “Martha Marcy May Marlene”), a sexually repressed beautiful young woman, is trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille (Tom Felton of the “Harry Potter” franchise), by her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin (two-time Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Jessica Lange).
Therese spends her days confined behind the counter of a small shop and her evenings watching Madame play dominos with an eclectic group. After she meets her husband’s alluring friend, Laurent (Oscar Isaac), she embarks on an illicit affair that leads to tragic consequences.

The drama will tell the story of a pilot (Dillahunt), bombardier (Felton) and radioman (Abel) who, during a scouting mission in January, 1942, are forced to ditch their plane and brave the ocean on a small life raft with no food, water or supplies.

What’s even more exciting than discovering a new secret passageway on the Marauder’s Map?
