A Thousand Times Good Night

Follows the risky exploits of driven war photojournalist Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) and her choice between family and career. While photographing suicide bombers she is badly hurt and returns home to Norway. There, her husband (Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and daughter have grown frustrated with the danger inherent in Rebecca's assignments. She is given an ultimatum: choose between combat zones and her family.

Director Erik Poppe draws on his own experience as a war photographer. U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr. draws on his own experience - as a guy who's been in heaps of music videos - in a supporting role.

A Thousand Times Good Night / Reviews

Variety

Deftly sidestepping both melodrama and family-values messaging, Poppe imbues the film with enormous emotional resonance, brilliantly grounded by his leading lady.

What makes this more than a dramatic essay on wartime journalism is Ms. Binoche's wrenchingly honest portrayal.

Although the ideas and performances are strong, the drama itself feels oddly disjointed ...

When Poppe is filming the things he cares about-war, domestic battles, or even the planes of Juliette Binoche's face-1,000 Times Good Night is exquisite.

An affecting drama made more poignant by honest-feeling autobiographical elements.

It's a rich, fascinating and provocative film that never takes sides or opts for easy answers.

A compelling, if well worn , topic - work/life balance - is brought vividly to life by a great Binoche performance.
