Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Actress and nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards, Elle is a thriller about the art of revenge. Michèle, the head of a successful video game company, brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to her business. When she is attacked changes her perspective of life forever and resolves to track down the man who assaulted her. What follows is a curious and thrilling cat and mouse game--a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.
"For people who enjoy coming out of movies unsettled, a little riled up, bursting with questions, and spoiling for a debate, see Elle." ~ Slate
