Let the Sunshine In (15)


A French drama in which a divorced painter re-enters the dating world.

The critical consensus

With its moody heroine, sex and reliance on talk it would be easy/stupid to dismiss Let The Sunshine In as oh so French, but Claire Denis’ most conventionally entertaining film is a delight. And it’s yet another reminder Juliette Binoche is an international treasure who should be cherished.

****(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 17/04/2018

Scintillating and complex, boasting a career-best performance from Juliette Binoche.

*****Adam Nayman, Little White Lies, 18/04/2018

Binoche is such a compelling and mercurial screen presence that she carries the story. With a less charismatic star, the film could easily have become repetitive.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 18/04/2018

An intriguingly inscrutable, bone-dry romantic comedy.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 20/04/2018

A modest film but Binoche's journey from hope to despair keeps you engrossed.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 20/04/2018

Juliette Binoche is unhappy in love in a frothy walk on the mild side.
