Flaubert’s famous (anti-)heroine finds her perfect interpreter in Mia Wasikowska, whose brittle intelligence layers Emma’s naivete and impulsive nature, and whose sparks of passion stand in stark contrast to the suffocatingly sterile and mannered provincial society into which she has been bred and wed. Visually exquisite, the movie is a fine showcase for one of our very best actors.

"It has a gem of a performance at the center… Wasikowska portrays her as a woman driven at all times by a recognizable sadness, one attempting with every purchase, lie, and assignation to correct the way life doesn’t always match up to our expectations. " Keith Phipps, The Dissolve
