Movies about the Media: A Thousand Times Good Night

IT’S being screened from today at the Filmhouse in Edinburgh, which describes A Thousand Times Good Night, thus: “War photographer, Rebecca (Juliette Binoche in one of her most powerful performances) is extremely driven, and known for her willingness to tackle risky subjects.

“While photographing suicide bombers, she is badly hurt in an explosion. When she returns home to Norway, her husband (Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and daughter tell her they’re tired of her risking her life on dangerous assignments.

“They give her an ultimatum, making her choose between her work and her family. This gripping, emotionally resonant drama was inspired by director Erik Poppe’s own experiences as a war photographer in the 1980s.”

But it’s a movie that has thus far received mixed reviews: The Guardian (two stars), The Telegraph (three stars), The Herald (four stars) and The Scotsman (two stars). Plus Total Film (three stars) and IMDB (7.3 out of ten).

Its run finished at the Glasgow Film Theatre yesterday.
