The Truth trailer: Get a first look at Kore-eda's new drama starring Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche and Ethan Hawke
Hirokazu Kore-eda has never been slow when it comes to releasing new films, but he seems to have been in overdrive since 2015, with Venice-opener, The Truth (La vérité), set to be his fifth feature in 4 years (and that's without counting TV documentary Ishibumi). The film is the follow-up to his Palme d'Or winning Shoplifters, and it will also be his first non-Japanese language release. The trailer has come from Japan so there are no subtitles available, but it does give a glimpse of the heavenly trio of Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche and Ethan Hawke. We should hopefully get a full, subtitled trailer for The Truth around the time of the Venice premiere in a week or two.
Fabienne 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 returns from New York to Paris with her husband and young child. The reunion between mother and daughter will quickly turn to confrontation: truths will be told, accounts settled, loves and resentments confessed.
After opening the Venice Film Festival, The Truth will also be playing at TIFF in September. It then opens in Japan in mid-October and France in January of next year. Curzon have distribution rights for the UK, but we won't expect to see it here for at least another 6 months.
