Set in the lower echelons of 1860s Paris, Thérèse Raquin (Elizabeth Olsen), a sexually repressed and beautiful young woman, is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille (Tom Felton), by her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin (two-time Oscar, SAG, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Jessica Lange). Therese spends her days confined behind the counter of a small shop and her evenings watching Madame play dominos with an eclectic group. After she meets her husband's alluring friend, Laurent (Oscar Isaac), she embarks on an illicit affair that leads to tragic consequences.
Directed and written by Charlie Stratton, Therese is produced by Mickey Liddell, CEO of LD Entertainment, and William Horberg of Wonderful Films. Michael Zelman and Richard Sharkey serve as the film's executive producers. LD Entertainment will also distribute the film.
