Arguably Asia's greatest living filmmaker, Hirokazu Koreeda (Like Father, Like Son; Shoplifters; Our Little Sister) enters the world of European cinema with the French set drama The Truth.

The film stars two of France's biggest stars, Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche, the former playing a veteran movie star, the latter her daughter, who arrives from the US to celebrate the publishing of her mother's memoirs with her husband (Ethan Hawke) in tow. The publishing of the book dredges up long-simmering hostilities between mother and daughter, whose views of the past differ greatly.

Check out the trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

Legends of French cinema Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche join masterful filmmaker Hirokazu Koreeda (Shoplifters, Still Walking) to paint a moving portrait of family dynamics in THE TRUTH. Fabienne (Catherine Deneuve) is an aging French movie star who, despite her momentary lapses in memory, remains a venerable force to be reckoned with. Upon the publication of her memoirs, her daughter Lumir (Juliette Binoche) returns to Paris from New York with her husband (Ethan Hawke) and their young daughter to commemorate its release. A sharp and funny battle of wits ensues between the mother-daughter duo, as Lumir takes issue with Fabienne's rose-colored version of the past. Reflected cleverly by Fabienne's latest role in a sci-fi drama, their strained relationship takes a poignant journey toward possible reconciliation. Charming, bold, and imbued with endless emotional insight, THE TRUTH offers a relatable look at human relationships, featuring exquisite performances from its all-star cast.
