Fabienne (Academy-Award® nominee Catherine Deneuve) is an iconic star of French cinema. She reigns amongst men who love and admire her. When Fabienne publishes her memoirs, her daughter Lumir (Academy-Award® winner Juliette Binoche) returns from New York to Paris with her husband (Academy-Award® nominee Ethan Hawke) and young daughter in tow. The reunion between mother and daughter quickly turns to confrontation as long-brewing familial tensions come to a head and long-denied truths are told.
In master filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda’s (Palme d’Or Winner, Academy-Award® nominee SHOPLIFTERS) first-ever French-language film THE TRUTH, two of France’s greatest screen legends come together to explore the often mercurial but always deep love that bonds families together throughout time.

The film is opening March 20th theatrically in NY/LA at IFC CENTER, FILM AT LINCON CENTER, and LANDMARK (LA). National expansion to follow.
