A provocative, adults-only erotic drama, Elles stars the phenomenal Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche as a journalist whose life choices are put tot he test when she uncovers some discomforting home truths.
Mother of two boys Anne (Juliette Binoche), an investigative freelancer for Elle, leads a perfectly bourgeois life in Paris, juggling family, work and leisure. Her research for an article on student prostitution cracks this serenity, as she meets Alicja (Joanna Kulig), a Polish student whose persona is as troubling as it is seductive, and Charlotte (Anais Demoustier), a somewhat reserved French woman who’s seemingly at ease with her profession.
Little by little, the stories of the two young women emerge. Where Anne expected to find poverty and distress, she instead discovers a silent determination, and is forced to question her most intimate convictions about her roles as a wife, a mother, and a writer; about money, family and sex.
