Audrey Tautou stars in French director Claude Miller’s Therese Desqueyroux, which was the closing-night film this year at Cannes and was Miller final film before he died. MPI Pictures has acquired all U.S. rights here at the Toronto Film Festival and plans a theatrical release in major markets in Spring 2013, followed by VOD and DVD releases. Based on the novel by Francois Mauriac, the redo of the original 1962 Georges Franju pic is a drama that centers on a woman who resorts to extreme measures to escape her suffocating marriage.
