Isabelle, Parisian artist, divorced mother, is looking for love, true love at last
Academy Award® winner Juliette Binoche is luminous in the new film from acclaimed French filmmaker Claire Denis (Beau Travail, White Material). Loosely based on Roland Barthes’s A Lovers Discourse, and an award winner at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, Let the Sunshine In is a sophisticated romantic comedy examining female companionship and sexual desire.
Juliette Binoche is Isabelle, a Parisian artist and middle-aged divorcée moving from relationship to relationship: from her ex-husband for whom she still has affection; the banker who bosses her around; and the handsome actor who has an inability to make a decision. Hungry for love but afraid of never having a meaningful relationship with a man again, Isabelle grapples with the keys to fulfilment. Joined by an illustrious cast, including Josiane Balasko, Gerard Depardieu, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Nicolas Duvauchelle, Binoche is radiant as a woman yearning to find happiness at a time when it feels like a rare commodity.
