Assistive Listening SUB Subtitled T Hearing Loop

Juliette Binoche delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic new film from acclaimed director Claire Denis (BEAU TRAVAIL, TROUBLE EVERY DAY). Isabelle (Juliette 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.

“...A 95-minute reconciliation with love, which has always been something of an unmitigable poison for Denis’s characters… Claire Denis finds the inexorable beauty (and sadness) in that most corrosive and fugacious of feelings.”  —Greg Cwik, Slant
