Film Movement has released the first trailer for their upcoming semi-authobiographical adaptation 1,000 Times Good Night, starring Juliette Binoche, while announcing that the drama will debut in theaters and VOD formats October 24.
Juliette Binoche plays Rebecca, a war photographer who returns from Kabul after covering a suicide bombing, when her husband (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) forces her to choose between her job and her family. Take a look at the first footage, then read more details from Film Movement's official press release.
Film Movement (FilmMovement.com) announces today the upcoming U.S. theatrical release of 1,000 Times Good Night, the semi-autobiographical, English-language drama by filmmaker Erik Poppe, starring Academy Award-winner Juliette Binoche in a richly-drawn headlining role. The film opens in select theaters and nationwide On Demand on Friday, October 24.
1,000 Times Good Night is the poignantly personal and incredibly timely story of Rebecca, one of the world's top war photographers. On assignment while photographing a female suicide bomber in Kabul, she gets badly hurt. Back home, another bomb drops when her husband (Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and young daughters - fearful for her safety - give her an ultimatum: her work or her family. A photographer in his own right who covered war conflicts for many years, director/co-writer Poppe's feature creates a compelling authenticity that Binoche effortlessly embodies.
In conjunction with the upcoming release, Film Movement today launches 1000TimesGoodNight.com, featuring the brand new U.S. trailer for the movie The Playlist says, "lays out some truly fascinating questions about the nature of the voyeuristic act of photography, how much the act itself changes that which it supposedly objectively documents, and where one's responsibility should lie in trying to prevent tragedy rather than report it."
1,000 Times Good Night opens in New York and Los Angeles on October 24, and will simultaneously be available nationwide On Demand on all major cable, satellite and digital providers. Additional theatrical openings across the country can be found at the film's official website.
