No stranger to controversy, director Paul Verhoeven’s latest offering is a provocative noir thriller that stunned audiences at Cannes.

Isabelle Huppert is mesmerising in her award-winning role as Michèle Leblanc, the CEO of a video games company, who is violently assaulted in her own home by a masked intruder. Verhoeven is typically subversive in Elle, unconcerned with fulfilling expectations of what would at first appear to be a story of revenge, by merging traumatic acts of violence with moments of dark satire.

More Basic Instinct than Showgirls, Elle is an alluring psychological thriller that is peak-Verhoeven: a film that will no doubt cause debate with its themes that explore sex, power and fantasy.
