Madame Bovary is an upcoming drama film directed by Sophie Barthes and starring Mia Wasikowska, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Paul Giamatti, and Ezra Miller. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Gustave Flaubert.


Set in Normandy, France. When Emma (Mia Wasikowska), a farm girl, marries Charles Bovary (Henry Lloyd-Hughes), a wealthy doctor to secure her future and to leave her father's pig farm, she finds herself having to pretend she is happy with her mundane life. Tired of pretending, she starts to have extramarital affairs that momentarily give her happiness but ultimately further her depression.[1][2]



In March 2012, it was reported that Mia Wasikowska had been cast in a film to be directed by Sophie Barthes.[5] Ezra Miller joined the cast in May[6] and Rhys Ifans in October 2012.[7] Laura Carmichael, Olivier Gourmet, and Logan Marshall-Green were linked to the project in September 2013.[8] Filming began on 30 September 2013 in Normandy.[8][9]

Joe Neurauter and Felipe Marino of Occupant Entertainment will produce the film in association with director Sophie Barthes' production company Aden Films and Jaime Mateus-Tique from Aleph Motion Pictures.[2]

Warner Bros. secured all German-speaking rights to the film from A Company Filmed Entertainment in April 2014.[2]
