“Clemency does what few other movies about death row have, handling a thorny, infinitely complicated subject in terms that are neither moralizing nor melodramatic.” Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

“There’s enormous tenderness in this drama of disillusion”

MUBI selection of the week:
Kore-Eda Hirokazu makes a French picture
Legends of French cinema Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche join masterful filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-Eda (Shoplifters, Still Walking) to paint a moving portrait of family dynamics in THE TRUTH.
Fabienne (Catherine Deneuve) is 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 sharp and funny 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. Charming, bold, and imbued with endless emotional insight, THE TRUTH offers a relatable look at human relationships, featuring exquisite performances from its all-star cast.
“In ‘The Truth,’ the Japanese writer-director Hirokazu Kore-eda wittily toys with Deneuve’s persona, its layers and meanings.”
Manohla Dargis, New York Times
