See the French Film "Elle" in Theaters Near You!

February 8, 2017 | By FRENCH CULTURE BOSTON
Don't miss this opportunity to see Paul Verhoeven's latest film Elle in select theaters now! Critically acclaimed and rewarded with an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for Isabelle Huppert, this French film is among the best releases of 2016.
 
About the movie:
The story of a woman seeking to reclaim her life after a traumatic event in her past, this psychological thriller has quickly become one of this year's must-see films. The New York Times called this film "a meticulously constructed maze of ambiguity, scrambling our assumptions and expectations at every turn" while The Guardian praised the lead actress, Isabelle Huppert's "standout performance."
Elle's incredible navigation of the power dynamics of romance and intimacy makes it one of the smartest films in theaters now, and director Paul Verhoeven's ability to make a powerful statement on consent makes the film into more than just a typical revenge tale.  
 
This film will be shown at the West Newton Cinema and Merrill's Roxy Theatrebut don't wait long because this film won't be in theatres forever!
