Loosely based on Roland Barthes’s ‘A Lovers Discourse’, Claire Denis’ (High Life) Let the Sunshine In is a sophisticated romantic comedy examining female companionship and desire. Juliette Binoche is Isabelle, a Parisian artist and divorcée moving from relationship to relationship: from her ex-husband for whom she still has affection; the banker who bosses her around; and the handsome actor who has an inability to make a decision. Afraid of never having a meaningful relationship with a man again, Isabelle grapples with the keys to fulfilment. Joined by an illustrious supporting cast, Binoche is radiant as a woman yearning to find happiness at a time when it feels like a rare commodity.
