EXCLUSIVE: IFC Films has released the first trailer for their forthcoming family dramedy The Truth starring French icon Catherine Deneuve and Oscar-winning actress Juliette Binoche. The film marks Hirokazu Kore-eda’s (director of Palme d’Or winner Shoplifters) first non-Japanese language film. The Truth is set to open in theaters March 20.
In the film, Deneuve stars as a legendary star of French cinema (not too far from the truth) who is loved and adored by men. When she publishes her memoirs, her daughter Lumir (Binoche) returns from New York to Paris with her husband (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.
Written and helmed by Kore-eda, The Truth is produced by Muriel Merlin. Co-producers are Miyuki Fukuma and Matilde Incerti. The film is a co-prduction by 3B productions Bunbuku & M.i Movies, France 3 cinéma, with participation of France Télévisions, Canal+, Ciné+, Le Pacte, Wild Bunch, Gaga Corporation.
