“There’s no greater rival than the one who doesn’t exist”

A remarkably elegant concoction of romantic drama and wild thriller, Who You Think I Am is a gripping portrait of identity and desire based on the novel by Camille Laurens. University lecturer and divorcee Claire (Juliette Binoche) has started dating the handsome Ludo (Guillaume Gouix) but is under no illusions as to his fidelity. After impulsively creating a fake Facebook profile in order to keep an eye on him – that of 24-year-old blonde ‘Clara’ – she finds herself initiating an unexpected flirtation with Ludo’s close friend Alex (François Civil). But as their online dalliance deepens, the duo is led to increasingly dangerous realms of deception. With generous dashes of gallows humour, this cracking thriller sees Binoche in typically absorbing top-form.

“A delicious, rug-pulling affair that comes across as one thing, and gradually reveals itself to be quite another. Binoche is on impressive quicksilver form” — The Hollywood Reporter
