Michèle (Isabelle Huppert) seems indestructible. The head of a leading video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle’s life forever. When she resolutely tracks down the man, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game—a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.  In one of the most ‘buzzed about’ performances of the year, Huppert stars in director Paul Verhoeven’s controversial and compelling fi lm about identity, violence and revenge, the official submission from France to the 2017 Academy Awards®.
