A Thousand Times Good Night
aka Tusen ganger god natt
First screened in October 2013
Director: Erik Poppe. Cast: Juliette Binoche, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lauryn Canny, Chloë Annett, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Bush Moukarzel, Eve Macklin, Larry Mullen, Jr. (yep!), Adrianna Cramer Curtis, Carl Shaaban. Screenplay: Erik Poppe, Harald Rosenløw-Eeg, and Kirsten Sheridan.

Twitter Capsule: Stylistically tepid; dulls some dramatic cruxes. Exciting to see woman's choices not be foreordained.

VOR:   I'll run to any Binoche vehicle, especially one that posits a woman who might, if forced, choose profession over family or political involvement over domestic ease. That said, less than essential.
