Synopsis by Jack Rodgers
In late 19th century France, a chambermaid (Léa Seydoux) deals with the cruelty and perversions of the upper class while working at a bourgeoisie home in Normandy. In time, she enters into a relationship with a fellow servant (Vincent Lindon) who may be deeply troubled. Directed by Benoît Jacquot, Diary of a Chambermaid is based on the 1900 novel of the same name by Octave Mirbeau.
