This screening is director Claire Denis' ‘Let the Sunshine In’.
Juliette Binoche lights up every frame of Claire Denis’ frank and rueful dramedy of romantic hope springing eternal, scripted in collaboration with controversial confessional novelist and playwright Christine Angot.
"Denis, whose narratives can be daringly free-associative, has structured Let the Sunshine In elegantly and intuitively, as a series of richly human encounters that flow, meander and pulse with life.” — Justin Chang, LA Times
A French production, 2017, 94 minutes, HD, R13 (sex scenes & sexual references), iIn French with English subtitles.
