Let The Sunshine In

Juliette Binoche delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic new film from acclaimed director Claire Denis (Beau Travail, White Material). In her adaptation of Roland Barthes’s A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments, 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. What reads like a standard romantic comedy is transformed by master filmmaker Denis into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love. In French with subtitles. (96 mins)
