1,000 Times Good Night

As Rebecca, a war photographer trying to reconcile her dangerous work with a husband (Game of Thrones‘ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and two daughters, Juliette Binoche acts with such ferocity and feeling that you’re pulled in. A stunning opening scene shows Rebecca tracking a suicide bomber in Kabul, with calamitous results. Director Erik Poppe can’t hope to match that adrenaline rush with Rebecca seeking domesticity. But he’s got an ace up his sleeve with his star. Binoche never falters. She’s the film’s fire and grieving heart.
