A resentful young Parisian chambermaid finds herself exiled to a position in the provinces where she immediately chafes against the noxious iron rules and pettiness of her high-handed bourgeois mistress, must rebuff the groping advances of Monsieur, and reckon with her fascination with the earthy, brooding gardener Joseph.

Home Market Releases for October 4th, 2016

October 4th, 2016

This includes the overall number one film, The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist, which opened with an average of $12,087. The only other film in the $10,000 club was De Palma, which earned an average of $10,118 in three theaters. More...
