Win One of 5 In-Season Double Passes


After the global success of the Cannes Palme d’Or-winning Shoplifters, master auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda’s wry and charming new dramedy pairs French screen icons Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche for the first time, as a celebrated actress and her estranged daughter, a writer, who reunite in Paris upon the release of the former’s memoirs.

A gentle, sly and moving exploration of reality and fiction, family, performance, and the great spectacle of life, THE TRUTH is a love letter to mothers and daughters everywhere.

Australian Premiere Season Commences 26 December
Where: Dendy Newtown & Opera Quays, Hayden Orpheum Cremorne, Palace Central, Norton Street & Verona and selected independent cinemas nationally.

Fabienne (Deneuve) is a star; a much loved, larger-than-life 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 (Clémentine Grenier) in tow. It comes as no surprise to Lumir that everything in her grand childhood home still revolves around her mother, and as she begins to read Fabienne’s book it becomes clear it’s riddled with omissions and embellishments – especially with regard to her relationship with the great artistic rival of her past, Sarah Mondavan.

Fabienne herself has no time for explanations and small talk; she’s preparing for her next film, a science-fiction drama, cast alongside a rising new talent (Manon Clavel) touted as ‘the next Sarah Mondavan’. When Fabienne’s long-suffering assistant unexpectedly quits, she and Lumir are reluctantly forced into an awkward working relationship, with Lumir revisiting the same film studios where she spent countless hours as a child. As the on and off-set worlds begin to amusingly – and movingly – intertwine, suppressed emotions can no longer be kept in check…

The Australian Premiere season of THE TRUTH (PG) commences 26 December, 2019 at selected independent cinemas nationally. For further information visit the official website.
