A Thousand Times Good Night review

The perils of a photojournalist...

The ethical and emotional repercussions of war reporting come under fire when photographer Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) is injured on a shoot. Hubby Marcus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) urges her to quit – but Rebecca’s compulsion isn’t so easily shrugged off.

Director Erik Poppe’s worthy intentions are nearly undone by an undisciplined screenplay. Still, he marshals two strong performances: Binoche’s subtlety in unpacking her character’s complexity is no surprise, but newcomer Lauryn Canny, as Rebecca’s daughter, matches her co-star’s every beat.
