We gave it a C+

Juliette Binoche is an actress who’s never less than hypnotic to watch. But she really has her work cut out for her in Erik Poppe’s didactic drama about a photojournalist who’s forced to choose between hopping on a flight to the next war zone and being a responsible wife and mother. The film is both overwrought and overly simplistic (not to mention sloooow), but its opening and closing scenes chronicling female suicide bombers in Kabul are tense and harrowing. C+
