“A wonderful sense of ensemble acting… [an] excellent performance by Frances O’Connor.” Daily Mail
Marriage to the reliable but unexciting charles, a provincial doctor, has left emma feeling unfulfilled and leads her to look elsewhere for satisfaction.
She embarks on a series of affairs and, since this glamorous lifestyle demands more money than Charles can provide, she runs up enormous debts with a devious local tradesman, Lheureux.

Bored, frustrated and desperate for romance, Emma bovary is in pursuit of passion…
