‘Who You Think I Am’ Trailer: Juliette Binoche Catfishes A Much Younger Man

Is there anyone who doesn’t like Juliette Binoche? While she often plays respectable, likable ladies she’s equally effective when given a dark side. And we get to see some of that brought to the surface in Who You Think I Am, in which she catfishes some poor, hapless 20-year-old. Oh my.

The film is directed and co-written by ​​Safy Nebbou, and stars Binoche as a middle-aged woman who gets a bit of payback against her much-younger ex by catfishing his roommate over social media. What starts as pretty innocuous quickly gets out of hand and into obsession.

Who You Think I Am hits theaters on September 3rd!

Juliette Binoche balances cunning and vulnerability in this romantic cyber-drama turned psychological thriller from writer-director Safy Nebbou. Ghosted by her hunky twenty-something 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
