Fabienne (Catherine Deneuve) is a star; a star of French cinema. She reigns amongst men who love and admire her. When she publishes her memoirs, her daughter Lumir (Juliette Binoche) returns from New York City to Paris with her husband (Ethan Hawke) and young child. The reunion between mother and daughter will quickly turn to confrontation: truths will be told, accounts settled, loves and resentments confessed. The Truth, also known as Shinjitu in Japanese or La vérité in French, is directed by acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda, of many films including Maborosi, Without Memory, After Life, Distance, Nobody Knows, Still Walking, Air Doll, Like Father Like Son, Our Little Sister, After the Storm, The Third Murder, and the Palme d'Or winner Shoplifters last year. The script is also written by Hirokazu Kore-eda, adapted by Léa Le Dimna. This premiered at the Venice Film Festival earlier this year. IFC Films will release Koreeda's The Truth in select US theaters starting March 20th, 2020 this spring. Interested?

I sure like the cast. Especially Ms. Binoche. However, not sure about the story of the situation. If it comes my way easily and effortlessly I'll give it a shot.

As said, this might be worth for the cast. And maybe, just maybe, there is something more of worth ....
