Following the worldwide success of the 2018 Cannes Palme d’Or-winning Shoplifters, THE TRUTH 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 Charlotte in tow. It soon becomes clear that Fabienne’s book is riddled with omissions and embellishments, especially when it comes to the great artistic rival of her past. When Fabienne’s long-suffering assistant unexpectedly quits just as her new film is about to commence shooting, mother and daughter are forced into an awkward working relationship, where suppressed emotions can no longer be kept in check.

The combination of Kore-eda’s vast knowledge and love of French cinema, coupled with his signature tenderly observant style, makes for 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.
