Elle ★★★★

Let me work this one out. 

Probably Damaged woman is raped which seems to have very little outward effect, and then cast of stylish, amoral characters interact with said woman who cuts a swathe through circumstances and people in the manner of a psychopath - which it suggested she may well be. Or it could just be that she’s french - since lots of the other characters are equally blithely monstrous to each other but all seem fine with it. 

That summary of what I made of the story doesn’t do Isabelle Huppert justice, as she’s nothing but compelling throughout - bringing a special air of detached amusement and a cold charm. Pretty much everyone else is great too.
