Detail from "Therese" poster, featuring Audrey Tautou

A gorgeous new poster for late director Claude Miller's final film "Therese" -- formerly known as "Therese Desqueyroux" when it debuted at Cannes in 2012 -- has been unveiled. Based on the classic novel by Francois Mauriac, this exquisite adaptation stars French darling Audrey Tautou as a provincial 1920s housewife who elects, a la Emma Bovary and Anna Karenina, to flee her suffocating life and marriage, with tragic consequences.

Reviews since the film competed for the Palme d'Or have been generally favorable. Philip French of The Observer calls it "a handsome, solidly acted period movie about deliberately dislikable people" and "the swansong of a director who was a longtime assistant to Truffaut" though Time Out says it's "a tad on the stiff side." "Therese" hits select stateside theaters August 23rd. Check out the new poster, and a trailer, below.
