TELLURIDE REPORT: MADAME BOVARY


The reviews from Telluride are in (at last!) for Sophie Barthes' Madame Bovary, and they're not very good. An adaptation of the literary classic may seem, on paper, like a curious choice for Barthes to follow Cold Souls, and a few critics are no more convinced having seen the film than they were before. There's one good review, from Justin Chang at Variety, but the rest - from Gregory Ellwood at In Contention, Rodrigo Perez at The Playlist and Todd McCarthy at The Hollywood Reporter - are pretty bad.
