About Elles 💬

The story of Anna, a journalist writing an article about prostitution among university students.

  • No strings, no emotion, no regrets?

Mother of two boys Anne (Juliette Binoche), an investigative freelancer for Elle, leads a perfectly bourgeois life in Paris, juggling family, work and leisure. Her research for an article on student prostitution cracks this serenity, as she meets Alicja (Joanna Kulig), a Polish student whose persona is as troubling as it is seductive, and Charlotte (Anaïs Demoustier), a somewhat reserved French woman who's seemingly at ease with her profession.

Little by little, the stories of the two young women emerge. Where Anne expected to find poverty and distress, she instead discovers a silent determination and is forced to question her most intimate convictions about her roles as a wife, a mother, and a writer; about money, family and sex.


It is a fact that young female students resort to prostitution to finance their studies. In the media, the subject is treated with moral disapproval on one hand and voyeuristic curiosity on the other. In magazines, there are ads that use women's bodies to sell objects alongside sententious, moralizing reports about women selling their own bodies to obtain those same objects. We wanted to confront this hypocrisy through an exchange of women's views: a female journalist in an enviable economic position, questioning two students who are trying to climb the social ladder and finance their studies through sex work - but also questioning her own desires along the way.

Szumowska says that they wanted to explore those women's desires without judging them in her film which is something of a ''women's project''.
