The Truth (French: La Vérité) follows the story of Fabienne (Catherine Deneuve), 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 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.
The Truth is a 2019 drama film written and directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda, starring Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche and Ethan Hawke. It is Kore-eda’s first film set outside Japan and not in his native language.

Lead star Catherine Deneuve (age 76) is a French actress as well as an occasional singer, model and producer. She became known for her portrayal of aloof and mysterious beauties for various directors, including Luis Buñuel, François Truffaut and Roman Polanski. In 1985, she succeeded Mireille Mathieu as the official face of Marianne, France’s national symbol of liberty. A 14-time César Award nominee, she won for her performances in Truffaut’s The Last Metro (1980), for which she also won the David di Donatello for Best Foreign Actress, and Régis Wargnier’s Indochine (1992).
Deneuve made her film debut in 1957 and first became popular in Jacques Demy’s 1964 musical The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, before going on to star for Polanski in Repulsion (1965), for Demy again in The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967) and Donkey Skin (1970), and for Buñuel in Belle de Jour (1967) and Tristana (1970). She was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Actress for Belle de Jour, and the Academy Award for Best Actress for Indochine. She also won the 1998 Volpi Cup for Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival for Place Vendôme. Other notable English-language films include The April Fools (1969), Hustle (1975), The Hunger (1983) and Dancer in the Dark (2000).
Juliette Binoche (age 55) is a French actress, artist, and dancer. She has appeared in more than 60 feature films, and has been the recipient of numerous international awards. She performed frequently on stage – both as an actress and dancer – internationally.
Binoche took acting lessons during adolescence and, after performing in several stage productions, was cast in the films of such notable auteur directors as Jean-Luc Godard (Hail Mary, 1985), Jacques Doillon (Family Life, 1985), and André Téchiné; the latter would make her a star in France with the leading role in his 1985 drama Rendez-vous. Her sensual performance in her English-language debut The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988), directed by Philip Kaufman, launched her international career.
Noted director Steven Spielberg offered her several parts, including a role in Jurassic Park which she declined, choosing instead to join Krzysztof Kieślowski in Three Colors: Blue (1993), for which she won the Venice Film Festival Award for Best Actress and a César. Three years later, Binoche gained further acclaim in Anthony Minghella’s The English Patient (1996), for which she was awarded an Academy Award and a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress, in addition to the Best Actress Award at the 1997 Berlin International Film Festival. For her performance in Lasse Hallström’s romantic comedy Chocolat (2000), Binoche was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. In 2010, she won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival for her role in Abbas Kiarostami’s Certified Copy making her the first actress to win the European “Best Actress Triple Crown” (for winning best actress awards at the Berlin, Cannes and Venice film festivals).
Ethan Hawke (age 49) is an American actor, writer, and director who has been nominated for four Academy Awards and a Tony Award. He has directed three feature films, three Off-Broadway plays, and a documentary. He has also written three novels and one graphic novel. He made his film debut with the 1985 science fiction feature Explorers, before making a breakthrough appearance in the 1989 drama “Dead Poets Society”. He appeared in various films before taking a role in the 1994 Generation X drama Reality Bites, for which he received critical praise. Hawke starred alongside Julie Delpy in Richard Linklater’s Before trilogy: Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013), all of which received critical acclaim.
