‘Who You Think I Am’

UK streaming platform Curzon Home Cinema (CHC) has reported a record digital opening for Safy Nebbou’s Who You Think I Am.

The romantic drama, starring Juliette Binoche, delivered the platform’s biggest three-day opening for a premium VoD title to date.

It benefitted from Curzon bringing forward the release of the film from May 8, implemented as part of a larger reshuffle to bolster its online offering while cinemas remain closed, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The performance helped CHC record a 630% increase on the equivalent weekend in 2019 and revenue generated from April 10-12 was 17% up on the platform’s previous best weekend.

The film, which received its world premiere as a Special Gala at the Berlinale in 2019, unseated Hirokazu Kore-eda’s The Truth, which also stars Binoche and had led CHC’s most-watched titles for three consecutive weekends.

Celine Sciamma’s Portrait Of A Lady On Fire remains the streaming platform’s most-popular title to date.

This weekend, Curzon’s new starters are two ’Exhibition on Screen’ films: Leonardo: The Works and Lucien Freud: A Self Portrait. The following week will see the release of Oliver Hermanus’ Moffie, on April 24.

CHC’s top 10 titles for April 10-12 were:

  1. Who You Think I Am (2019)
  2. The Truth (2019)
  3. Portrait Of A Lady On Fire (2019)
  4. Knives Out (2019)
  5. Martin Margiela: In His Own Words (2019)
  6. The Perfect Candidate (2019)
  7. Military Wives (2019)
  8. Vivarium (2019)
  9. And Then We Danced (2019)
  10. Sulphur And White (2020)
