Isabelle Huppert gives the performance of her career in Paul Verhoeven’s twisty cat-and-mouse game about a woman who goes after the man who sexually assaulted her.

 

Michèle (Isabelle Huppert) seems indestructible. Head of a successful video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle’s life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game-a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.

 

Critic Quotes: “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

“A masterpiece of suave perversity, the movie leads its audience through a meticulously constructed maze of ambiguity, scrambling our assumptions and expectations at every turn.” – The New York Times

“For people who enjoy coming out of movies unsettled, a little riled up, bursting with questions, and spoiling for a debate, see Elle.” – Slate

“Watching Elle feels like climbing Mt. Everest without an oxygen tank. The air is dizzyingly clear up there. And dangerous, too.” – RogerEbert.com

“A provocateur to his core, Verhoeven wades breezily into hot-potato territory, all the while refusing moral judgment.” – NPR

“High-risk material yields unexpected rewards in this remarkable rape-revenge drama, a possible career high for Paul Verhoeven.” – Variety
