The Truth Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda
We’re unlikely to witness such brutal honesty about the clash of art and politics in any other movie this year.

These are all interesting, moving ideas, but they’re all just kind of hanging out in The Truth, drawing attention to themselves without ever really developing in a way that doesn’t feel manufactured.

“The Truth” doesn’t have very much of a plot. What little there is serves as a clothesline for its two excellent leads to hang their performances out to dry. This very entertaining movie is all about its women, mothers and daughters, grandmothers and granddaughters, actresses and mentors and best friends whose relationship has gone downhill for reasons about to be unearthed.
