Binoche, who turns 48 today, is probably most famous in the US for her role in Chocolat. I found that movie kind of treacly, but check out Binoche in this scene from Certified Copy, a trippy 2010 film where a man and a woman meet and pretend to be a crabby long-married couple, whereupon they start fighting for real. Rent it โ€” Binoche comes off as sort of unhinged, and then you end up rooting for the couple like they were actually married. Also: she is so fucking pretty.

Oh and also: have a great weekend!
