The Truth

After the global success of the Cannes Palme d’Or-winning Shoplifters, master auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda’s wry and charming new dramedy The Truth pairs 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. With a keen knowledge and love of French cinema, Kore-eda lends this hugely enjoyable film the observant, tender eye audiences have come to cherish. The Truth is a very special cinema experience: a gentle, sly 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.
