The Truth
(La Vérité)

  •   Hirokazu Kore-eda
  •   France, Japan
  •   Special Presentation

Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche play a mother and daughter at odds in master director Kore-eda’s (Shoplifters) first foray outside of his native Japan. After her movie star mother Fabienne (Deneuve) publishes a controversial memoir, screenwriter Lumir (Binoche) returns to France with husband Hank (Ethan Hawke) and child in tow. Fabienne is shooting her newest film, Memories of My Mother, and the on-screen and on-set worlds become increasingly and amusingly intertwined in this shrewd exploration of reality and fiction, family and forgiveness.

“It’s a relief that Kore-eda’s approach to delicate family dynamics spans the language barrier, though hardly a surprise.”
