About the Movie
A beautiful, sweeping story, Rebecca (Academy Award-winner Juliette Binoche) is one of the world’s top war photojournalists who captures dangerous and chilling images in the most dire landscapes, all in an effort to shed light on the real cost of modern war. But she’s also a wife and mother, leaving behind a husband, Marcus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and two young daughters every time she travels to a new combat zone. After she is nearly killed chronicling the ritual of a female suicide bomber, Marcus levels an ultimatum: give up the dangerous profession or lose the family she counts on being there each time she returns. The belief that her photos can make a difference keeps pulling at Rebecca’s resolve, making it difficult for her to entirely walk away. 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: What makes "1,000 Times Good Night" more than a dramatic essay on wartime journalism is Ms. Binoche's wrenchingly honest portrayal ...
Fresh: Poppe can't match the stunning opener of Binoche photographing a suicide bomber in Kabul with scenes of domesticity. But Binoche never falters. She's the film's fire and grieving heart.
Fresh: Poppe crafts some powerful scenes that pose questions not easily answered.
Rotten: Poppe's closeness to the material ensures a level of passion, but he still fails to create a truly specific dynamic for Rebecca and Marcus's family ...
Powerful & Subtle
I enjoyed this film immensely. It was disturbing, sad, dark, sweet. Juliette Binoche was splendid as always and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was super. I'd never seen him in anything before. Good actor. I hope to see him in more things.
