Drag out the anti-depressants.
The subtitled French film I’ve Loved You So Long is heavy stuff.
Kristin Scott Thomas and Elsa Zylberstein play sisters. Thomas’ just got out of prison where she spent 15 years doing time for an unspecified crime. Zylberstein and her hubby and friends try to nurse her back to social health.
I’ve Loved You So Long is more about acting than plot. It takes way too long to get to why Thomas’ character was loved so long.
If more people saw this movie, then Thomas might have gotten an Oscar nomination for her tight, emotionally controlled acting.
And for once the producers actually cast two people that really look like sisters.
