A reporter investigates Paris's underground prostitution scene.
Anne is a middle-aged journalist for Elle Magazine in Paris, assigned to investigate the city's underground prostitution scene. Her work on the article soon blossoms into friendships with two women who pursue this work for disparate reasons.
Featuring a fearless performance by Juliette Binoche as a woman uncovering the insidious effects of patriarchy, Elles is a daring examination of feminism and gender politics in contemporary France. The fourth feature from award-winning Polish filmmaker Malgoska Szumowska (Mug, Never Gonna Snow Again) premiered at Berlin, Toronto, and Tribeca.
