The Truth

Drama


 

A daughter visits her parents with her own family when her mother, a renowned actor, publishes her memoir.

"The Truth" is a complex story that defies easy explanation. It's said that the truth is never simple, and that certainly applies here through a close examination of the relationship between a mother and daughter. The actors' performances are exquisitely nuanced as they explore memory and perception, but the audience is held at an emotional distance as we try to determine what is indeed fact and what is being acted. There's a pervading sense of watching a film within a film. Truth and friction.
