In 1926, in the Landes region of France, the free-spirited Thérèse (Audrey Tatou), the daughter of a wealthy pinery owner and radical-socialist politician, marries Bernard Desqueyroux, one of her father’s plain and rather boring colleagues. Doing her social duty only half-heartedly, Thérèse thinks that marriage may be just the platform to kickstart her inner curiosity. But, once married, she realizes her tragic mistake and undertakes a plan to rectify her situation one way or another. The final film of French master Claude Miller, THERESE DESQUEYROUX is the story of a stifling relationship and a desperate play for freedom.
