From the director of Coco Before Chanel comes Gemma Bovery, a sumptuous dramedy, which opened the 2015 Alliance Française French Film Festival. When English couple, Gemma and Charles Bovery, move into a small Normandy town, Martin Joubert, the baker and resident Flaubert fan, can’t believe it. Here are two real life people who seem to be replicating the behaviour of his favourite fictional characters right before his eyes. Starring Gemma Arterton as the playfully modern version of France’s most famous heroine with Fabrice Luchini as the smitten baker and film’s narrator, Gemma Bovery releases through Regency Media on 28 May.

As you may have guessed, Gemma Bovery is a re-working of Flaubert’s Madame Bovary. This film was adapted from the graphic novel of the same name by Posy Simmonds. Simmonds also provided the source material for which 2010 film – also starring Gemma Arterton – that was a reworking of a Thomas Hardy novel?
