I’ve Loved You So Long Film Review

Lea (Elsa Zylberstein) picks up her older sister Juliette (Kirstin Scott Thomas) from prison. She has been serving a prison sentence for 15 years.  Juliette moves in with Lea, Lea’s husband and children where she wrestles with trying to acclimate to a family she has never truly known,overcome her own personal demons and find a comfortable place in society.

This is actually a hard movie to describe and still have it sound interesting, and, believe me, it is an interesting film. Hopefully my description above does it some justice.  I could have described it as after 15 years in prison, a woman moves in with her sister and absolutely nothing happens that involves action, retribution, suspense, criminal activity, falling from grace or just about anything that typically jazzes up an ex-con film.  In fact, this film needs absolutely none of this and finds its way just fine.
