Michèle (Isabelle Huppert) is the fierce head of a leading video company. One day, Michèle is raped in her home by an unknown assailant. Michèle decides she will figure out his identity and track him down. Soon, she finds herself participating in a twisted game. Elle is directed by Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct).
"Demented, exhilarating. A high-wire act without a net. It's a rape-revenge-ensemble-comedy-thriller-stalker mashup, if you can even picture that. Huppert does not make even an unconscious bid for our sympathy. She never has, throughout her lengthy career and it is one of the things that distinguishes her from other actresses. It's why she's so thrilling to watch." (Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com)
