Based on Guy de Maupassant’s novel ‘Une Vie’, A Woman’s Life is a beautiful and moving tale of tormented love embedded in the restrictive social and moral codes of marriage and family in 19th Century Normandy.

Upon finishing her school in a convent, young aristocrat Jeanne marries local Viscount Julien de Lamare, who soon reveals himself to be a miserly and unfaithful husband. As she navigates her new circumstances and the joys and burdens of motherhood, Jeanne’s rosy illusions about her privileged world are slowly stripped away.
