About In Secret
Based on Émile Zola's classic novel Therese Raquin, In Secret tells the story of a woman's sexual awakening and descent into crime and torment. Therese (Elizabeth Olsen) is a beautiful young woman living with her aunt Madame Raquin (Jessica Lange) and cousin Camille (Tom Felton) in 19th Century Paris. As she has no real prospects and her maternal bloodline is unknown, Madame Raquin constantly reminds Therese of her low origins and keeps her trapped behind the counter of the family haberdashery. Eventually she is betrothed to the sickly, naive Camille and unhappily begins a loveless marriage. When Camille's colleague, an arrogant, rough would-be artist named Laurent (Oscar Isaac) comes to visit, Therese finds her passions awakened and they start a ruinous affair.
