TRUTH, THE (2019)
With her American husband Hank (Ethan Hawke) in tow, Lumir (Juliette Binoche) goes to visit her mother Fabienne (Catherine Deneuve) in her beautiful country home to celebrate the release of Fabienne's memoir chronicling her lifelong career in front of the camera. Now in her twilight years, Fabienne is finally starting to show some vulnerability on the set of her latest film, but she's still butting heads with her daughter at home. Meanwhile, Hank, the TV actor who speaks no French, is just happy to be along for the ride. This mother-daughter comedy from Palme d'Or-winning director Hirokazu Kore-eda (SHOPLIFTERS) starring two French screen icons is the perfect recipe for a good time.
