Master auteur Kore-eda Hirokazu's wry and charming new dramedy THE TRUTH pairs French screen icons 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 one of the great stars of French cinema. She reigns amongst men who love and admire her. When she publishes her memoirs, her daughter Lumir (Binoche), a screenwriter, returns to Paris with her husband and their young child. The reunion between mother and daughter quickly turns to confrontation: truths will be told, accounts settled, loves and resentments confessed.
