LD Entertainment has released the first image of Elizabeth Olsen and Oscar Isaac getting romantic in THERESE, the gothic thriller directed by Charlie Stratten based on the book by Emile Zola. The film also stars Jessica Lange, Tom Felton, Mackenzie Crook and Matt Lucas.
Check out the image below. And yes, I was fibbing just a little when I said it was "hot".
Set in the lower depths of 1860s Paris, THERESE is a tale of obsessive love, adultery and revenge based on Emile Zola's scandalous novel, Thérèse Raquin. Therese (Elizabeth Olsen of "Martha Marcy May Marlene"), a sexually repressed beautiful young woman, is trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille (Tom Felton of the "Harry Potter" franchise), by her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin (two-time Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Jessica Lange). Therese spends her days confined behind the counter of a small shop and her evenings watching Madame play dominos with an eclectic group. After she meets her husband's alluring friend, Laurent (Oscar Isaac), she embarks on an illicit affair that leads to tragic consequences.
What that synopsis doesn't tell you is that the "tragic consequences" are brought about by supernatural occurrences; at least, that's the case if the film follows the book, where a vengeful spirit shows up to drive a couple of the characters mad.
THERESE opens on September 27th.
