New Trailer: Paul Verhoeven’s “Elle”

“Total Recall” and “Basic Instinct” helmer Paul Verhoeven is used to controversy, but his Cannes Film Festival entry this year “Elle” surprisingly didn’t receive much debate despite being effectively a dark comedy about rape and revenge.

Instead it nabbed some quite strong reviews, especially for its leading lady Isabelle Huppert. With the film set to hit several major festivals coming up including Toronto, New York and the AFI fest. Laurent Lafitte, Anne Consigny, Charles Berling, Virgine Aefira, Judith Magre, Christian Berkel, Jonas Bloquet, Alice Isaaz, and Vimila Pons all co-star in the film which opens on November 11th.
