Gemma Bovery is a 2014 French-British comedy-drama film based on Posy Simmonds' 1999 graphic novel of the same name. Directed by Anne Fontaine, the film stars Gemma Arterton, Jason Flemyng, Mel Raido, and Fabrice Luchini. The film premiered in the Special Presentations section at the Toronto International Film Festival on 6 September 2014.

Synopsis

Martin (Fabrice Luchini), an ex-Parisian with a deep appreciation for Gustave Flaubert, has settled in a village in Normandy as a baker. He sees a British couple moving into an old property across the road. Their names, Gemma (Gemma Arterton) and Charles Bovery (Jason Flemyng), echo those of the leading characters in Flaubert's 1856 masterpiece Madame Bovary. Martin engages with the young couple and observes Gemma's behaviour replicates that of her namesake, including a series of romantic and sexual liaisons that suggest she is headed for a tragic finale like that of the novel. He intervenes but cannot alter the inevitable conclusion.

Agathe is a successful art dealer who lives with her husband François and their son Adrien in a wealthy quarter of Paris. Unfortunately Adrien is an underachiever at his school and Agathe cannot bother François into leaving the flat for parent-teacher conferences. Moreover the family has an abandoned construction site in their flat. The situation gets stirred up when Adrien befriends a classmate who has a rather dubious social background. His friend is raised by a single father named Patrick who has neither a proper home nor tact. Although Agathe is obviously distressed by Patrick's unpolished behaviour, her husband François just hires him to take care of the overdue repairs. François and Patrick even become friends. Then François hits successfully on a woman Patrick had wanted for himself and leaves Agathe. Patrick and Agathe are both left back. Agathe develops empathy for this man who au contraire to her husband is dedicated to do everything necessary to make sure his son can attend a respected school.

Lance Clayton (Williams) is a single father and high school English teacher. He dreams of becoming a famous writer, but his previous novels have all been rejected by publishers. His 15-year-old son, Kyle (Sabara), is a pornography-obsessed underachiever who despises everyone, especially his father. Kyle is a student at the school where Lance teaches an unpopular poetry class. His only friend is Andrew, a fellow student who spends his evenings at the Claytons' house trying to avoid his alcoholic mother. Kyle's consistently poor academic performance and vile behavior gain the attention of the school principal (Geoff Pierson), who advises Lance that Kyle should transfer to a special-needs school (it is loosely implied that Kyle may be on the autism spectrum.) Lance is in a non-committal relationship with a younger teacher named Claire (Gilmore), who is spending time with a fellow teacher named Mike (Henry Simmons), whose writing class is more successful than Lance's. On nights when Claire cancels their dates and he is alone, Lance bonds with his elderly neighbor Bonnie (Mitzi McCall).
