MRS HYDE / MADAME HYDE (N/C 15+)

In this eccentric revision of Robert Louis Stevenson’s literary classic Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Isabelle Huppert features as the eponymous Mrs. Hyde, directed by Serge Bozon. Mme Géquil (Huppert) is a prim, meek and unconventional physics teacher at a working class suburban Parisian high school, often derided by her fellow colleagues for her inability to engage students and control the unruly ones. On an appropriately stormy night, she is struck by lightning in her private laboratory and turns into something decidedly “different”. Romain Duris plays the school’s principal as Bozon explores the relationship between the privileged and under-privileged in contemporary French society.
