1,000 TIMES GOOD NIGHT
"An affecting drama. Deeply compelling....[Binoche's] transformation is as unsettling as the violence she's chronicling."
– The Hollywood Reporter,
"[A] gripping, emotionally resonant drama...starring French luminary Juliette Binoche."
"Elegant and aesthetically pleasing! Binoche is particularly terrific."

Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) is one of the world's top war photojournalists, capturing dangerous and chilling images in the most dire landscapes, all in an effort to shed light on the real cost of modern war. But she's also a wife and mother, leaving behind a husband and two young daughters every time she travels to a new combat zone. After a near-death experience chronicling the ritual of a female suicide bomber, husband Marcus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) levels an ultimatum: give up the dangerous profession or lose the family she counts on being there when she returns from each assignment. Yet the conviction that her photos can make a difference keeps pulling at Rebecca's resolve, making it difficult for her to walk away entirely. With an offer to photograph a refugee camp in Kenya, a place allegedly so safe that daughter Steph (Lauryn Canny) is allowed to join her, Rebecca comes face to face with just how much she risks each time she steps back into the fray.

A compelling drama beautifully acted and filmed that vividly portrays the dilemma not only of conflict photographers who are parents but the feelings being torn between love of one's work and one's family. No easy answer is offered.

Another great film by Erik Poppe! The film explores the fine line between a passion for a dangerous cause and maintaining a healthy family life.
