In SecretIndie film darling Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) stars in the thriller movie In Secret.

Set in 1860 Paris, the movie tells the story of Therese Raquin (Elizabeth Olsen), who was forced into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin (Tom Felton, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1) by her domineering aunt (Jessica Lange, TV’s American Horror Story). But when Therese meets her husband’s alluring friend Laurent (Oscar Isaac), the two start an illicit affair that has tragic consequences.

In Secret is based on the 19th century novel Therese Raquin by Emile Zola and the stage play of the same name by Neal Bell. The film is the first directed by actor Charlie Stratton (Notes From Underground), who also wrote the screenplay.

Rated R, the movie was released in a limited number of theaters and received mixed reviews from critics and moviegoers. Philadelphia Inquirer‘s Steven Rea called it “quite awful,” but Detroit News‘ Tom Long wrote the film “offers all the essentials: unbridled passion, deceit, fate so unkind, a classically creepy mother and grand tragedy.”

The DVD carries two special features:

  • commentary by Charlie Stratton
  • deleted scenes.
