Based on the graphic novel of the same name, this film follows the story of Gemma Bovery (Arterton) as her life unfolds like that of a classic piece of literature. Martin Joubert (Luchini) is a baker in rural France and a passionate expert on French writer Gustave Flaubert. When Gemma and her husband, Charles (Flemyng), move from London to his Norman village, Martin can't help but notice the striking similarities between the couple and Flaubert's characters of the same names. Acting as Gemma's mentor, Martin notes that her life resembles that of Flaubert's doomed heroine more and more with each passing minute.
