Let the Sunshine In

dir. Claire Denis 2017 France 94 min.
Isabelle, a Parisian artist and divorced mother, is looking for true love at last.

Isabelle (the wonderful Juliette Binoche in one of her best roles) lives in Paris. She is a divorced, single mother. As a mature woman, she knows what she wants and knows what she herself can offer. After years of disappointing relationships, she is once again trying to find love. She wants to find the one, the true one, for the rest of her life, although she seems to have stopped believing in it. She meets a new man on her way, with whom she experiences extreme emotions: from joy and hope to confusion and sadness.

The film won the SACD award in the Directors' Fortnight section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, and Juliette Binoche was nominated for a European Film Award for Best Actress. The film also stars Gerard Depardieu and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi.
