Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Directed by France's Safy Nebbou, this film is a fascinating character study of a 50-year old divorced teacher, in what is a nuanced exploration of mental health. In Claire, Binoche crafts a complex character and the psychology of the role is tackled well, through therapy sessions. Binoche is truly remarkable, taking a good film and turning it into a great one.

Despite Claire's evident flaws and damaging dishonesty -- to both herself and others -- all her insecurities are endearing as well as recognizable. It makes for a sympathetic and compassionate tale with Claire remaining relatable throughout. Given the character's affliction for deceit, Who You Think I Am has a sense of unreliability, which makes for a compelling affair.
