Isabelle, Parisian artist, divorced mother, is looking for love, true love at last.

"It’s a deep and moving investigation into one woman’s inner struggle as she goes about looking for true love."
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"This is the touch of a cinematic master. "
- Glenn Kenny,
"Binoche is everywhere in this story. As in "Three Colors: Blue" (1993) and "The English Patient" (1996), she delivers a rich portrait of a restless heart, steeped in earthiness and radiance alike."
- Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"The film slowly but surely works its charms, painting a rich, emotionally complex portrait of a woman who, like Denis herself, will not let herself be boxed in."
- Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter
"Denis and Binoche have made a film that’s both smart and sexy, imbuing new excitement and wonder into the emotional connections that define us all. "
- Joe Blessing, The Playlist
"Let the Sunshine In is a unique, spellbinding work, worthy of comparison to Denis’s best films. "
- David Sims, The Atlantic
"The blend of artistry and genre is breezy and dense at the same time, a film worth enjoying for its surface charms and studied for its deeply personal reflections on intimacy. You may delight in its lively, buoyant filmmaking, but you’ll be awed by the breadth of its insight. "
- Andrew Crump, Paste Magazine
"It's Binoche, here delivering one of her finest and most subtly calibrated performances, who imbues Isabelle with the heart and earthy eroticism that makes her far more appealing, even heroic, than the pathetic figure she might have been."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"A simple story of enormous complexity. A romantic comedy and drama in which the questioning of those very categories is a part of the action...a peculiarly insightful glimpse into the emotional fluidity within the formal boundaries of French culture."
- Richard Brody, New Yorker
"Denis and her writing partner, the novelist and playwright Christine Angot, have woven a sublime comedy of sexual indecision. They mine Isabelle's affairs for humor as well as heartache, and do it with such delicacy that you may be hard-pressed to tell which is which. "
- Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
