Let The Sunshine In

Let the Sunshine In pairs a powerful performance from Juliette Binoche with a layered drama that presents director Claire Denis at her most assured.

Juliette Binoche delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic new film from acclaimed director Claire Denis (White Material). 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.

Watch Trailer

“It's a pleasure to go along with that ride - to watch Binoche's face lighting up like a flower suddenly blooming, to enjoy Denis' golden light and moody, nostalgic score.”

Seattle Times

“[An] elegantly observed romance about a divorced woman searching for "one real love" in a city of lupine losers.”

Toronto Star

“A simple story of enormous complexity. A romantic comedy and drama in which the questioning of those very categories is a part of the action...a peculiarly insightful glimpse into the emotional fluidity within the formal boundaries of French culture.”
