THE TRUTH
THE TRUTH

Although THE TRUTH is Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda’s first film made outside his native country, he maintains his famous quiet, contemplative style and humanism that made him famous internationally in THE SHOPLIFTERS. This character-driven study involves Fabienne Dangeville, one of the great stars of French cinema (Catherine Deneuve), who has a troubled relationship with her daughter Lumir (Juliette Binoche). When Lumir and her husband, Hank (Ethan Hawke) return to Paris with their young child, things come to a head with the publication of Fabienne’s memoir. Their reunion turns confrontational as truths are told, accounts are settled, and love and resentment are confessed.

“From first shot to last, it’s a film of high wit and confidence and verve, an astonishingly fluid and accomplished act of boundary-leaping” (VARIETY).
