There has, of course, been significant investment in High Life, the Claire Denis-Robert Pattinson sci-fi movie that’s expected to finally make landfall this year. (We named it our most-anticipated of 2018, for God’s sake.) Thrilled though I am to see one of our very greatest filmmakers get her biggest-ever spotlight, I hope it doesn’t have some effect of obscuring another forthcoming picture — and one whose quality I can actually attest for, if that helps. (Please.)

Following its run at Cannes and NYFF, Denis’ Juliette Binoche-starrer, Let the Sunshine In, will come to theaters and VOD on April 27. Thus brings a domestic trailer that, like most, I’d recommend skipping — here in particular because this is a picture whose pleasures and oddities unfold delicately, which would account for my allergic reaction to this preview’s emotional strong-arming that ignores proper representation to pull in a bigger crowd. Instead, maybe read our positive review, which not-inaccurately posits it “could be argued as a reset for Denis, an amuse-bouche between two meatier courses,” and deftly communicates its strengths as “a film littered with off-piste humor and featuring a memorable, warm-hearted ending that argues being open to serendipitous new experiences beats comforting certainties in life.”

Watch the preview below:

An incandescent Juliette Binoche stars in this wry new film from the legendary Claire Denis. Isabelle is a Parisian artist looking for a meaningful romance as the film saunters elliptically through her encounters with an aggressive married man (Xavier Beauvois), a highly sensitive thespian (Nicolas Duvauchelle), a charming hairdresser (Paul Blain), a gentleman with commitment issues (Alex Descas) and finally, a mysterious fortune teller. Loosely inspired by Roland Barthes’ “A Lover’s Discourse,” LET THE SUNSHINE IN showcases iconic French cinematic talents at the height of their powers.
