After notching two Golden Globe wins and a subsequent Best Actress nomination at this year’s Oscars, the Isabelle Huppert-driven Elle – the first film in a decade from director Paul Verhoeven – is set to make its home entertainment release bow, with plenty of fans out there waiting to get their hands on this fantastic film for 2017.
Already a shoe-in for many film fans’ top 10 list for the year, Elle is a tour de force of a film featuring yet another spellbinding performance from Huppert, once again with the actress showing just why she is one of the most coveted actresses working today. With the film having passed its cinematic release by, the home entertainment release for Elle is scheduled for Digital Download on 3rd July, with its DVD and Blu-Ray release coming a week later on 10th July.
With further details of the release to be confirmed in the near future, you can check out the overview of the film below.
A mesmerising thriller driven by the year’s most talked about performance from Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Isabelle Huppert, ELLE arrives on digital download July 3rd, 2017, before coming to Blu-ray and DVD on July 10th, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Wealthy entrepreneur Michèle (Huppert) seems indestructible as the head of a successful video game company, and brings the same ruthless attitude to her private and love life as to her business. But after being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant her life changes forever. Whilst determined to track down her attacker without help from the police, she becomes suddenly aware of the chaotic relationships that define her life; an imprisoned father, her increasingly detached son and a secret affair she’s hidden from a close friend. When Michèle resolutely tracks her attacker down, she draws him into a dangerous game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.
ELLE marks the emphatic return of acclaimed director Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct, Total Recall), as his first feature film released in over ten years. Huppert, the film’s beating heart, gives an incredibly powerful performance that justifiably drew immense critical acclaim and a Best Actress gong at this year’s Golden Globe Awards (as well as an Academy Award nomination). ELLE is an unforgettable revenge thriller like no other that will test your inhibitions as much as it grips. Essential cinema and an essential purchase.
