In A THOUSAND TIMES GOODNIGHT, Juliette Binoche plays Rebecca, a war photographer who constantly risks harm just to capture the perfect shot. It's a passion that's earned her many awards, but one that also leaves her family in constant fear. During a trip to Afghanistan, Rebecca is injured while accompanying a female suicide bomber to Kabul. When she returns home to Ireland, her husband makes it clear that he's fed up. With regret, Rebecca retires her camera and decides to focus her energy on her family. Her oldest daughter Steph begins to show an interest in humanitarian work after doing a project for school. One of Rebecca's connections offers her an opportunity to take Steph to Kenya to visit a refugee camp. Under the assurance that the trip will be safe, her husband agrees to let them go. When the camp is attacked, Rebecca's priorities will once again be tested. Will her desire to document tragedy come before her safety and her daughter’s? Binoche is absolutely superb as a highly conflicted, work-obsessed photojournalist. —E.F.
