Written and directed by Shoplifters director Kore-eda Hirokazu outside of his native Japan, this enjoyable story brings together iconic Oscar-nominated actresses Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche.
SELECTED: VENICE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2019

Deneuve plays Fabienne, an iconic French actress, currently shooting her latest movie, who is demanding and dismissive to those around her. When it comes to her own autobiography, however, she is more than happy to fudge the details. Upon the release of her book, she’s visited by her estranged daughter Lumir (a soulful Binoche), son-in-law and struggling actor Hank (Ethan Hawke), and her young granddaughter. As Lumir dives into her mother’s book, she finds that almost none of it aligns with her own memory of growing up, leading to confrontations and long-buried resentments. Ultimately this is a warm and quietly moving story that jumbles acting and real life; truth and fiction.
If Shoplifters was a story about strangers pretending to be relatives, this is a story about relatives pretending to be strangers.
