I've Loved You So Long
Source: Catholic News Service
Moving drama about a broken woman (Kristin Scott Thomas) who has been released from prison after many years for having inexplicably murdered her 6-year-old child. She is taken in by her younger sister (Elsa Zylberstein) and wary brother-in-law (Serge Hazanavicius), where gradually, embraced by the loving atmosphere of the household, including two adopted Vietnamese nieces and a stroke-victim grandfather, she has a rebirth, coming to terms with her past and slowly learning to reconnect with the outside world. Novelist-turned-director Philippe Claudel's compassionate story demonstrates profound respect for human dignity, anchored by Thomas' extraordinary performance, beautifully matched by that of Zylberstein, as the pair re-establish a sisterly bond thought lost. In French. Subtitles. An implied nonmarital encounter, suicide, a couple of crude expressions. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II–adults. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
