Synopsis

Following the global success of Cannes Palme d’Or-Winning Shoplifters, THE TRUTH (PG) is Kore-eda’s wry and charming new dramedy, pairing beloved Academy Award® nominees Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche for the first time as a celebrated actress and her estranged daughter, whose tentative reunion offers an opportunity to either repair or irrevocably fracture their relationship.

Fabienne (Deneuve) is a much-loved icon of French cinema. When she publishes her memoirs, her screenwriter daughter Lumir (Binoche) returns to Paris from New York for the occasion, with her struggling actor husband Hank (Ethan Hawke) and their inquisitive young daughter in tow. As Lumir begins to read Fabienne’s book it becomes clear it is riddled with omissions and embellishments, especially when it comes to the great artistic rival of Fabienne’s past. The combination of Kore-eda’s vast knowledge and love of French cinema, coupled with his signature tenderly observant style, makes for a hugely enjoyable film.

Fabienne herself has no time for explanations and small talk; she’s preparing for her next film, a science-fiction drama, cast alongside a rising new talent (Manon Clavel) touted as ‘the next Sarah Mondavan’. When Fabienne’s long-suffering assistant unexpectedly quits, she and Lumir are reluctantly forced into an awkward working relationship, with Lumir revisiting the same film studios where she spent countless hours as a child. As the on and off-set worlds begin to amusingly – and movingly – intertwine, suppressed emotions can no longer be kept in check…

Premiering to great acclaim as the opening night of the 2019 Venice Film Festival, THE TRUTH is a very special cinema experience: a gentle and moving exploration of reality and fiction, family, performance, and the great spectacle of life. It’s a love letter to mothers and daughters everywhere.
