On the cusp of its debut to the world out in Toronto, the first clip from Charlie Stratton’s anticipated Therese has launched online, giving an early look at what will soon be heading into cinemas followings its festival bow.
Elizabeth Olsen leads a stellar cast as the eponymous Thérèse Raquin in Stratton’s adaptation of the classic novel, with Tom Felton, Oscar Isaac, and Jessica Lange starring alongside her.
This bold adaptation of Émile Zola’s sordid novel of adultery and murder in 19th-century Paris places the talented Elizabeth Olsen in the title role, engaging our sympathies and our revulsion in equal measure, until the satisfyingly grim finale.
Starring alongside the leading quartet will be Shirley Henderson, Mackenzie Crook, Matt Lucas, and John Kavanaugh.
Stratton is making his feature directorial debut, and is writing from his own script, adapting Émile Zola’s 1867 novel, Thérèse Raquin.
Therese will be making its debut at TIFF in a few weeks’ time, and is set to be released in the US on September 27th. No word yet on a UK release date, but hopefully it won’t be long before it crosses the Atlantic. In the meantime, here’s the first clip from the anticipated film. Smart money says this will be one of the most talked-about debuts at the festival.
