Who You Think I Am (MA15+)
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 love too, the handsome and much younger 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 with 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 (Francois Civil) does, and their on-line connection soon becomes flirtatious. Titillated by the opportunity to be "young again", Claire's deception lead both of her identities into increasingly dangerous territory.
Based on the novel by Camille Laurens, this remarkable portrait - part romantic drama, part sly and wildly entertaining thriller - explores contemporary issues in an intelligent and compelling manner and will likely spark fierce post screening conversation. Unsurprisingly Binoch is phenomenal.
