As the complicated videogame CEO Michèle Leblanc in director Paul Verhoeven’s Elle, Isabelle Huppert gives a performance of exquisite precision that many would like to define as “brave”. The French star disagrees: “I don’t see as being brave because I think all work consists of bringing the audience to really literally step into someone’s life”, shed told as at the Toronto Film Festival. “And really get into someone’s mind. This is just a story. I think acting is more about imagination.” This is Isabelle Huppert’s first Golden Globe nomination.
