Few films have afforded the incomparable Juliette Binoche the opportunity to showcase her remarkable range as the gripping new thriller about female desire and identity, WHO YOU THINK I AM.
Binoche plays Claire, a university lecturer and mother of two teenage boys, who is contending with the approach of middle age and remains stung by the betrayal of her ex-husband (Charles Berling), who is building a new life with another partner.
Claire has a new lover too, the handsome Ludo, but is under no illusions as to his fidelity. Out of a mix of petulance and curiosity, she impulsively creates a fake Facebook profile in which to keep an eye on him: she’s ‘Clara’, vivacious, blonde… and 24 years old. Ludo doesn’t take the bait, but his close friend Alex (François Civil) does, and their online connection soon becomes flirtatious. Titillated by the opportunity to be “young again”, Claire’s deceptions lead both of her identities into increasingly dangerous territory…
Based on a novel by Camille Laurens, this remarkable portrait – part psychological drama, part thriller – explores contemporary issues in an intelligent and compelling manner, and will likely spark fierce post-screening conversations. Unsurprisingly, Binoche is phenomenal.
"A crackling thriller. Plays its trump cards with insouciance, yielding giggles and gasps in equal measure, sometimes at once."
"Delicious. Binoche is on impressive, quicksilver form."
