Thérèse Raquin

Theatrical Release Date:  TBC
Home Ent. Release Date:  15 Mar 2009
Cert:   -


Trapped in a loveless arranged marriage with her sickly cousin (Jacques Duby), Thérèse (Simone Signoret) lives a life without the passion she so desperately craves. Inwardly railing against her fate and under the searing eye of her domineering aunt, she encounters Laurent (Raf Vallone), a handsome lorry driver with whom she falls instantly in love. Laurent implores her to leave her husband but the faithful wife knows they cannot unite while her husband is still alive. When fate offers a glimmer of freedom, will the realization of her dreams truly bring Thérèse happiness? With impeccable performances and near-faultless direction from Carné, Thérèse Raquin does true justice to the Émile Zola classic on which it’s based.
