Mia Wasikowska, Madame Bovary



Australia’s Mia Wasikowska, just 23 when she landed a role in the 2014 film version of Madame Bovary, ranks among the youngest to play the anti-heroine whose marital frustrations and obsessive shopping continue to intrigue filmmakers and audiences. The actress candidly discusses the pressure of tackling so celebrated a part, and discloses why she turned down another role as Cate Blanchett’s lover in the upcoming Todd Haynes film, Carol.
