    Not content to beat out Lauren Bacall for an Oscar, to be France’s highest paying actress, to strip down for French “Playboy” at 44, or to somehow never age (we’d like a peek inside her medicine cabinet), Juliette Binoche lands in Gotham in a couple weeks to show off her many other talents -- dancer, poet, painter, etc. – and generally to make us feel like slackers. Here’s where to catch her:

    • “In-Eyes” brings together 58 of Binoche’s ink-wash portraits (many of herself and her co-stars of various film projects) and poems, on display at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy (9/10-10/9). On 9/11, she’ll be at the Lincoln Triangle Barnes & Noble presenting the accompanying book “Portraits – In-Eyes.” [more]
    • Binoche and Akram Khan perform their passionate contemporary dance piece for two, “In-I,” as part of the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s 2009 Next Wave Festival, starting 9/15. [more]
    • BAMCinématek will present Rendez-Vous With Juliette Binoche, a 14-film retrospective including “Damage,” “Lovers on the Bridge” and a sneak preview of her new feelgood movie “Paris” (which opens in public release on 9/18), after which she and director Cédric Klapisch will do a Q&A. Runs 9/11-30. [more]
    • At Florence Gould Hall, Charlie Rose will host a screening of the documentary “Juliette Binoche, Sketches for a Portrait,” an intimate look at the actress’ life and artistic process made by her sister, Marion Stalens. Binoche and Stalens will be on hand to discuss. 9/8. [more]
