Based on Joseph Conrad’s novella The Return, the film tells the story of an upper class woman, Gabrielle, who leaves her husband in the morning only to return to him inexplicably the same evening. Theatrical in its language and staging, but cinematic in its use of widescreen and visual effects, Gabrielle is a stylized examination of a suddenly-imploded marriage.
