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 filmmaker Denis, into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love.
Presented by After Hours Film Society on Monday, August 13, 2018 at 7:30 PM at the Tivoli Theatre. Admission $6 members, $10 non-members.
