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. Emma (Mia Wasikowska), a farmer's daughter, marries Charles Bovary (Henry Lloyd-Hughes), a young doctor, but soon tires of him and her mundane life, longing for romance and a more fulfilling existence. She has 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]

On September 9, 2014, one day before its Telluride Film Festival debut, Millennium Entertainment acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the film.[10]
