Based on the scandalous novel by Emile Zola, Therese Raquin tells the story of a young woman (Kate Nelligan, The Cider House Rules) who is bored with her mundane life and trapped in a marriage with her feebleminded cousin, Camille (Kenneth Cranham, Maleficent). When Camille brings home his childhood friend, Laurent (Brian Cox, The Bourne Supremacy), the romantic chemistry between Therese and Laurent is undeniable. The two launch into a sultry affair filled with clandestine encounters and crimes of passion. What desperate measures are these lovers willing to take to ensure they can be together? The superb ensemble cast garnered wide acclaim for their performances, with Nelligan hailed as electrifying and Cox as superb (Daily Express, UK), in this BAFTA Award-winning miniseries also starring Alan Rickman (Sense and Sensibility, Harry Potter films).
