I've Loved You So Long
(Il y a longtemps que je t'aime)
After more than a decade apart, estranged sisters Juliette (Kristin Scott Thomas) and Lea (Elsa Zylberstein) try to rebuild their fractured relationship. But the task is hardly easy, considering Juliette's past: She's been in jail for 15 years -- for killing someone. As she settles into small-town life with Lea's family, the locals can't help but talk. Writer-director Philippe Claudel's feature film debut garnered him a Golden Globe nomination.
Well done. Kristin Scott Thomas may have been a risky choice in this French film. She does introspective, distant, and secretive well.
