Let The Sunshine In (2018)

1h 34m / Not Rated / Comedy

Juliette Binoche (The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Chocolat) delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic Let the Sunshine In, from acclaimed director Claire Denis.

Isabelle 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, The Young Lieutenant) who, like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor (Nicolas Duvauchelle, A Decent Man) who’s working through his own hang-ups and peccadilloes; and a sensitive fellow artist (Alex Descas, The Limits of Control) who’s skittish about commitment. What seems at first glance like a standard romantic comedy premise is transformed by a shattering performance by Binoche and the deft, delicate touch of Denis into something altogether deeper, more sophisticated, more poignant, and more sharply perceptive about the profound mysteries of love.
