Overview

Japanese auteur Kore-eda Hirokazu (Shoplifters) returns with another delightfully complex tale of family. To celebrate the publication of iconic French actress Fabienne’s (Catherine Deneuve) tell-all memoir, her somewhat estranged daughter Lumir (Juliette Binoche) travels back to Paris with her American husband (Ethan Hawke) and daughter in tow. Shocked to find her mothers memories are much more romantic than she remembers, Lumir is forced to connect with her Fabienne when she inspires her long-time assistant to quit and Lumir must step in and help Fabienne on and off the set of her latest film which has Fabienne grappling with her age.

"Exquisite. Directed with remarkable precision."
— The Times
"Very cleverly constructed. There's so much to enjoy in this film."
— Margaret Pomeranz, Foxtel Arts
"Works splendidly. A gentle film composed of many delights."
— David Stratton, The Australian
"Excellent. An absolute masterwork. An extraordinarily insightful and generous film."
— Jason Di Rosso, ABC Radio National

Why You Should See This Film

Rich and warm, The Truth is a remarkable film from the ever empathetic Kore-eda – it covers dense areas but has a lovely light touch. Deneuve and Binoche are the ultimate mother-daughter pair, and Hawke shows a tender side we haven’t seen on screen for awhile.
