About

Academy Award winner, Juliette Binoche, balances cunning and vulnerability in this romantic cyber-drama turned psychological thriller from writer-director Safy Nebbou. Ghosted by her hunky twentysomething lover, Claire (Binoche), a middle-aged professor and single mom, creates a fake Facebook profile to do a little undetected online snooping. But when her 24-year-old avatar “Clara” is friended by her ex’s equally attractive roommate (François Civil), superficial correspondence quickly escalates towards intense intimacy and uncontrollable obsession. Adapted from Camille Laurens’ best-selling novel —and co-scripted by Julie Peyr, a regular collaborator of Arnaud Desplechin—Who You Think I Am blends genres and bends reality to dizzying effect.

Reviews

  • "There's a kind of illicit thrill about watching Binoche dive so committedly into this woman's damage, drugged by the dopamine hits she gets from the little green light of Alex's active status."
    - Daily Telegraph (UK)
  • "Binoche gives another outstanding performance in this thrilling psychological drama."
    - The Jewish Chronicle
  • " It all adds up to a very modern drama about age-old anxieties: the fear of ageing and death; the desire for intimacy and reassurance; the allure of artifice and deceit."
    - Observer (UK)
