Oscar Isaac has a date with Therese this September…
The 33-year-old Guatemalan and Cuban American actor, who is earning rave reviews for the soon-to-be released film Inside Llewyn Davis, will star in the romantic thriller Therese.
The film, based on Emile Zola’s novel Therese Raquin, also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Felton and Jessica Lange.
Set in the lower depths of 1860s Paris, Olsen plays Therese, a sexually repressed woman trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin Camille (Felton) by her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin (Lange). After she meets her husband’s alluring friend Laurent (Isaac), she embarks on an illicit affair that leads to tragic consequences.
Shirley Henderson, John Kavanagh, Mackenzie Crook and Matt Lucas co-star.
Therese is set to have its world premiere on September 7 at the Toronto Film Festival.
