Juliette Binoche delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic new film from acclaimed director Claire Denis. Isabelle 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 who, like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor who's working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist 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.

What the critics are saying:
"Let the Sunshine In pairs a powerful performance from Juliette Binoche with a layered drama that presents director Claire Denis at her most assured." - Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
"Tilt it one way, and "Let the Sunshine In" becomes a dramatic portrait of a woman's sensual restlessness. Tilted the other way, it's a bittersweet romantic comedy." - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"It's Binoche, here delivering one of her finest and most subtly calibrated performances, who imbues Isabelle with the heart and earthy eroticism that makes her far more appealing, even heroic, than the pathetic figure she might have been." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
