Let the Sunshine In
CAST: Juliette Binoche, Xavier Beauvois, Philippe Katerine, Gerard Depardieu DIRECTOR: Claire Denis ENDS 6/14
Isabelle (Binoche) is a divorced Parisian painter searching for another shot at love, but refusing to settle for the parade of all-too-flawed men who drift in and out of her life. There's a caddish banker (Xavier Beauvois) who, like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor (Nicolas Duvauchelle) who's working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist (Alex Descas) who's skittish about commitment. What reads like a standard romantic comedy premise is transformed, in the hands of master filmmaker Denis, into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love.
A multifaceted, bittersweet delight.Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
Binoche willingly opens herself up and invitingly lures you in to bask in the joy and the heartbreak of a woman who puts it all on the line in a noble quest for love.Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
