Torn between a husband and a lover, death is the only answer.
Based on Zola's first major work, Therese Raquin is the sordid story of a young country girl whose life is slowly engulfed in a murderous love triangle, which eventually drives her to her death.
A perverse Romeo and Juliet, Therese's tale is one of love and regret, of unbridled passion overwhelming common sense.
Desperate to be together, Therese and her lover conspire to murder Therese's husband and initiate a deteriorating series of events that can only end in tragedy.
Witness the power of love and deceit that will haunt you long after the credits have ended with an all-star cast that features Kate Nelligan, Brian Cox and Alan Rickman.
