Synopsis: Filmmaker Claire Denis teams with novelist Christine Angot to tell the story of Isabelle, a 50-something Parisian artist played by the great Juliette Binoche. Through the elliptical tale of Isabelle's successive relationships with a variety of egotistical if not downright oafish men, Denis pulls off a surprising balancing act between the melancholy truths of ageism, sexism and class relations in contemporary France and a light, occasionally fanciful comic touch. Driven by Binoche's masterful performance, "Let the Sunshine In" takes the perspective of a woman in late middle age to give a timely report on the battle of the sexes, hinting at the more general malaise hanging over French society today.
A wine and cheese reception will follow the screening. Festival passes to all films and events are $35. Tickets and festival passes are available online or at the door.
