ELLES with Juliette Binoche out on DVD and Blu-Ray

From 21/08/2012 at 23:00 to 29/08/2012 at 23:00

Just like the eponymous publication, ELLES is a feminist film made by women for women. Under the pretext of looking into the growing phenomenon of student prostitution, this provocative Franco-Polish production explores female sexuality from a voyeuristic perspective.

 

 

PLOT:

Contrary to what the title suggests, ELLES is much more of a one woman show; an unsettling journey into the life of a (sexually) frustrated middle-aged woman.  As she turns to reflect on her own life the subjects of her study, students Charlotte (Anais Demoustier) and Alicja (Joanna Kulig), take a back seat, appearing only in the leading lady’s flashbacks.

Anne (Juliette Binoche) is an educated and wealthy Parisian who works as a journalist for ELLE magazine. As the deadline for her latest project - a piece about student prostitution - draws near, the bourgeois correspondent relives the intimate experiences of the two young sex-workers she has been interviewing. What started off as just another assignment turns personal, and Anne is forced to confront her own sexual desires and fears.
