You can hear distant thunder as Addie lies down to wait for death. “My father used to say the reason for living was to get ready to stay dead a long time.” The Mississippi heat is oppressive. The women with Addie fan themselves as they wait. Through the open window, Addie can hear her son, Cash sawing wood for the coffin. It’s a comforting sound because Addie wants her flesh and blood to get her buried. Her sons are outside, except that Jewel’s not around. “Probably fooling with that damn horse,” says Anse, Addie’s husband. Jewel and Darl are brothers… same mother, anyway… and they’re getting the wagon ready to make a delivery. Anse protests. “If she don’t last till you get back, she’ll be disappointed.” But they promise the old man they’ll be home in time. “It were her only wish,” he says. Addie wants to be buried in Jefferson, and it’ll be a long trip in the wagon. Jewel and Darl need the $3 they’re gettin paid for the delivery, so they have to go. “It’s fixin up to rain,” warns Anse. “I wouldn’t keep her waitin.”
Olivier Gourmet and Laura Carmichael are also added to the adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s examination of infidelity
Logan Marshall-Green, Olivier Gourmet and Laura Carmichael have joined the cast of “Madame Bovary.”
The adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s classic look at the things that can go awry when spouses stray from the marital bed stars Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland”), Ezra Miller (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”), Paul Giamatti (“Sideways”) and Rhys Ifans (“The Amazing Spider-Man). Filming begins Monday in France.
Marshall-Green, who looks like Tom Hardy’s doppelganger, turned heads in “Prometheus” as Noomi Rapace’s lover. Oliver Gourmet is a Belgian actor best known for his acclaimed work in “The Son.” Carmichael garnered attention on this continent playing the homely Lady Edith on “Downton Abbey.”
Sophie Barthes (“Cold Souls”) directs the Occupant Entertainment production
Marshall-Green is represented by CAA and 3 Arts Entertainment, Gourmet is represented by Artmedia and Carmichael is represented by Curtis Brown Group and Untitled Entertainment.
