This film closes on Thursday, May 29th.

Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) is a committed photojournalist, hardened to grim realities of the world after documenting warzones. Recuperating after suffering an injury, she recognises how her work has affected her family, and works to mend fractured relationships with her marine-biologist husband Marcus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), and her two young children.

Yet, inspired by teenage daughter Steph’s (Lauryn Canny) interest in Africa, Rebecca decides to take a job in Kenya and bring Steph along, a trip that results in her having to make an impossible choice between the adrenalin draw of a job she is passionate about and the people she loves most. Set in Ireland, Kenya and Afghanistan, and illuminated by a terrific star turn from Binoche, A Thousand Times Good Night is a gripping and intensely moving drama, informed by director Erik Poppe’s own experiences as a photojournalist in the 1980s.
