(Relaxnews) – Photojournalist Rebecca specializes in documenting troubled war zones, but her calling comes at great cost to both herself and her family.

While recuperating from an injury sustained by a bomb blast in Kabul, Binoche is given an ultimatum by her husband and young daughter.

But the strength of her promise is put to the test when another assignment comes in, this time in a Kenyan refugee camp.

Starring Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient”), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister in “Game of Thrones”) and even U2 drummer Larry Mullen — who played opposite Donald Sutherland in 2011’s “Man on the Train” — the film won several plaudits at the Montreal World Film Festival in 2013, including the jury’s Special Grand Prize.

Also among cast members are experienced TV series actresses Maria Doyle Kennedy (Vera Bates in “Downton Abbey”), Chloë Annett (Kristine Kochanski in “Red Dwarf”), Laryn Canny (title role in “Amber”) as well as Denise McCormack and Eve Macklin (Linda and Georgina in “Love/Hate”).

Already set for a May 2 debut in the UK and Ireland, “A Thousand Times Good Night” has been picked up by US distributor Film Movement, notes Indie Wire, so its chances of gaining a wider distribution are good.
