French cinema legend Isabelle Huppert teams up with master provocateur Paul Verhoeven for the new psychological thriller ELLE, releasing in select cinemas October 27.
Nominated for the Palme D’or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and featuring an “Oscar-worthy” performance by Huppert, ELLE screened to stellar critical reviews.
“…a dangerous delight…electrifying…” “…uproarious, galvanic and guaranteed to spark debate.”– Xan Brooks, The Guardian ★★★★★
“Funny and shocking, exhilarating and original” – David Sexton, London Evening Standard ★★★★★
“Elle might just be the most Paul Verhoeven film yet, due to its willingness to push buttons, explore transgressive territory and take constant delight in venturing where the vast majority of filmmakers would fear to tread.” – Catherine Bray, Time Out ★★★★
Michèle seems indestructible. Head of a leading video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle’s life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game—a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.
