A successful businesswoman (Isabelle Huppert) gets caught up in a game of cat and mouse as she tracks down the unknown man who raped her.
Michèle is the Head of a successful company - she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle's life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game - a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control. ‘Elle’ is a serious and deeply reasoned film about rape, not solely from the director’s point of view, but from Michèle herself, (and by proxy, Huppert) who undertakes an intellectual examination of her rape and rapist. Huppert won the 2017 Golden Globe for Best Actress for this performance.
