I've Loved You So Long is a 2008 Belgium drama directed by Philipe Claudel, distributed by Sony Pictures Classics. Pale, plainly dressed, but striking, Juliette Fontaine (Kristin Scott Thomas) is met at the airport by her sister L'a (Elsa Zylberstein) and taken to stay with her, her lexicographer husband Luc (Serge Hazanavicius), and their two little adopted Vietnamese girls in their big, comfortable house in the provincial French city of Nancy. Several men become interested in Juliette, but she remains remote and shut down. Viewers discover that the explanations of years of travel or a lengthy sojourn in England are covers. Juliette has just been released after 15 years in prison for killing her six-year-old son and L'a has taken the risk of providing her with a place to stay and adjust. Eventually she and L'a become closer and reach an understanding and Juliette begins to make a life for herself. This is the story of the two sister's closure and Juliette's moving on.moreless
