Claude Miller’s final film stars Audrey Tautou as the titular character who is desperate to escape the confines of a stifling marriage in 1920s France. Society fails to understand Thérèse’s anguish at her situation, which has left her with no choice but to take drastic action. The film is anchored by a performance of subtlety and depth by Tautou, who is ably matched by Gilles Lellouche as her husband.
