APRIL FILM - ELLE April 10th - Connaught Sudio

Worthing Film Club are proud to present the critically acclaimed 'Elle' on Monday April 10th at 8.15pm.

Director Paul Verhoeven' s latest film is both an outrageous black comedy and a deadly psychological thriller.

Isabelle Huppert (Amour, 8 Women, Heaven's Gate) plays a successful businesswoman who gets caught up in a game of cat and mouse as she tracks down the unknown man who raped her.

'Elle' premiered in competition for the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival where it received critical acclaim.  It won the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film and Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Huppert's performance is outstanding, and considered to be one of the finest of her career. She was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress.

"Isabelle Huppert delivers a standout performance as a woman turning the tables on her attacker in the controversial director’s electrifying and provocative comeback" - THE GUARDIAN (5/5)
