Let the Sunshine In
NAME OF FILM: LET THE SUNSHINE IN
DIRECTOR(S): Claire Denis
STARRING: Juliette Binoche
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: Living alone in Paris, Isabelle (Juliette Binoche), a divorced artist in her 50s, is optimistic that romantic hope springs eternal – or maybe she does. But as she auditions, not unpleasantly, but with increasing exasperation, a steady succession of prospective men, she ponders just what she’s seeking, and whether sex and companionship are really the keys to fulfillment. Featuring an ensemble cast of stellar French actors including Gerard Depardieu, Denis offers a complex, feminist take on love and the quest to find Mr. Right while not being trapped by need, convention, or expectation.
