Juliette Binoche stars in this charming romantic comedy about a woman looking for love in all the wrong places. Directed by Claire Denis (Chocolat; 35 Shots of Rum).
“[An] exquisitely judged romantic comedy, which maps out the transient pleasures, pitfalls and emotional culs-de-sac of mid-life dating with all the close human scrutiny and hot-blooded sensual detail of [Denis’] sterner dramatic work. Perfectly small rather than slight, and radiantly carried by Juliette Binoche in a light-touch tour de force.” – Guy Lodge, Variety
“A tale of frustrations and desires, otherness and encounters, Denis’ first true comedy – or shall we say, her first genuinely humorous film – proves just as profound and attuned to the complexity of human relationships as her previous work.” – Elena Lazic, Seventh Row
“If the romantic comedy is practically defined by its journey toward resolution – by reassuring audiences that there’s always somebody out there for us – then LET THE SUNSHINE IN completely upends the formula, closing out instead on a delirious, hilarious vision of utter dissolution. To say more would be a crime. Suffice it to say that the movie’s mostly enjoyable, but its ending is immortal.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice.
