About Julie Christie

Julie Christie was born in 1941 in India. She grew up on  her father's tea plantation, and was sent to England for her education, training for the theatre at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London.
Having spent the first three or four years of her career on the British stage her big break came with the leading role in the British television series A For Andromeda (1961). Her first film role was in1962 in The Fast Lady followed by such films as Billy Liar, Darling, Doctor Zhivago, Young Cassidy, Fahrenheit 451, Far From The Madding Crowd, PetuliaMcCabe and Mrs Miller, The Go-Between, Don’t Look Back, Shampoo, Nashville, Demon Seed and Heaven Can Wait.

Karen Robinson, writing in The Sunday Times said that Julie Christie " takes a lively tone that relishes the detailed scenes — a country wedding, a smart ball — and sees the absurdity in trying to be happy while married to a dull doctor in Normandy. But the story is as riveting as ever, as Emma Bovary tries, first, intense romantic fantasy, then passionate but doomed love affairs."

Madame Bovary Audiobook

Madame Bovary Audiobook
Written by Gustave Flaubert
Read by Julie Christie

Very few novels have created as much outrage and adoration as Madam Bovary. This unabridged audio book, read by the aclaimed actress Julie Christie tells of  Emma Bovary’s attempts to escape the maddening boredom of being married to the wrong man, in the wrong town, with the wrong picture of her life via a series of very realistically described adulterous affairs.

This ensured that author Gustave Flaubert had practically the whole of France involved in the hullabaloo that greeted the novel’s publication in 1856. He was prosecuted for it (unsuccessfully), and then wildly fêted for it and his establishment as one of the most popular of literary geniuses is based on it.
