Screener Squad: The Truth

The Truth Movie Review


Sometimes memory can’t be trusted. This fact is especially the case for iconic actress Fabienne (Catherine Deneuve), who has just written a memoir and is also acting in a new film. Everything seems to be going well until her daughter (Juliette Binoche) visits with her family. While Fabienne’s book tells of a sentimental and heart-warming past, her daughter refutes her version of things with a much more tragic perspective. Fabienne is also having problems with her new film as it is beginning to uncover conflicting emotions especially because of her talented co-star. As the days go on and the movie progresses, Fabienne may realize that lying to herself and others might not be enough to bury the feelings of regret. London, Lewayne, and Frank are here to reveal if this movie is memorable or if it will just fade away from memory.
