Life imitates art in uncanny ways when English beauty Gemma Bovery (Gemma Arterton) and her husband Charles move into an old farmhouse in Normandy...in the very same village where Flaubert’s classic novel MADAME BOVARY was written a century earlier. Immediately entranced by the lovely Gemma, local baker and Flaubert enthusiast Martin Joubert (Fabrice Luchini) quickly draws parallels between the literary character and her real-life counterpart. When Gemma catches the eye of a handsome local playboy, Joubert fears her destiny may be unavoidably linked to that of Flaubert’s tragic heroine. Based on the graphic novel by Posy Simmonds (TAMARA DREWE), GEMMA BOVERY is at once, a cheeky literary mash-up, a sensuous romance, and an intoxicating celebration of French provincial life.

Critics Consensus: Gemma Bovery's bursts of charm -- among them Gemma Arterton's winsome performance in the title role -- are often enough to compensate for its lack of focus.
