Madame Bovary 2000

Madame Bovary ★★½ 2000

British adaptation of Gustave Flaubert's scandalous novel, which is set in rural Normandy in the 1830s and ‘40s. Emma (O'Connor) is the conventeducated daughter of a farmer, who makes an unwise marriage to country doctor Charles Bovary (Bonneville), whom she doesn't love. Indeed, Emma has some overly romantic notions about love that lead to infidelity and despair. But it's Emma's extravagence and her borrowing from the usurious Lheureux (Barron) that bring her to disaster. None of the characters are particularly bright (or likeable) so your sympathy is at a minimum. 140m/C VHS . GB Frances O'Connor, Hugh Bonneville, Greg Wise, Hugh Dancy, Keith Barron, Trevor Peacock; D: Tim Fywell; W: Heidi Thomas. TV

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
