1,000 Times Good Night
Drama, Romance, Action
Rebecca (Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche) is one of the world’s top war photojournalists, but she’s also a wife and mother, leaving behind a husband and two young daughters every time she travels to a new combat zone. After a near-death experience chronicling the ritual of a female suicide bomber, husband Marcus (Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) levels an ultimatum: give up the dangerous profession or lose her family. With an offer to photograph a refugee camp in Kenya, a place allegedly so safe that daughter Steph (Lauryn Canny) is allowed to join her, Rebecca comes face to face with just how much she risks each time she steps back into the fray.
Winner of the Founder’s Award at the Chicago International Film Festival, 1000 TIMES GOOD NIGHT is "[A] gripping, emotionally resonant drama...starring French luminary Juliette Binoche."(Variety)
