She was recently seen in Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) opposite Kristen Stewart, and can next be seen in The 33 (November 2015) with Antonio Banderas, which is based on the real events of the 2010Chilean mining disaster.

In addition to her film work, Binoche has frequently returned to the theater, with credits that include the 1988 production of Chekov's The Seagull, directed by Andrei Konchalovsky at the Théâtre de l'Odéon in Paris; Naked at the Almeida Theatre in London; the 2012 modernized version of August Strindberg's classic playMiss Julie at London's Barbican; dancer Akram Khan's 2008 dance-drama piece called in-i at the Royal National Theatre in London; and her Broadway debut in Harold Pinter's Betrayal opposite Liev Schreiber and John Slattery, for which she earned a 2001 Tony® nomination as Best Actress. Binoche traveled throughout Europe and continues to tour in the United States in the title role of Sophokles's Antigone, directed by Ivo van Hove with a new translation by award-winning poet Anne Carson. The production, which premiered at Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, is a co-production with the Barbican London, in association with the Toneelgroep Amsterdam.
