The Truth (PG)
Events Temporarily Postponed
Thu 01 Jan 1970 - Thu 01 Jan 1970
In response to the developing coronavirus situation in the UK, Exeter Phoenix is currently closed to the public. This is a temporary measure and we are taking this on a month-by-month basis. No events will be taking place during March, and the vast majority of events will be rescheduled for later in the year. We are following government advice and acting in the best interests of our visitors and staff.
Unprecedented closures like this with no confirmed government support will be hugely damaging for charities like Exeter Phoenix and many other sectors. If you are in a position to consider making a donation HERE, we would be extremely grateful.
Dir. Hirokazu Koreeda

After the global success of the Cannes Palme dOr-winning Shoplifters, master auteur Kore-eda Hirokazus wry and charming new dramedy The Truth pairs French screen icons Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche for the first time, as a celebrated actress and her estranged daughter, a screenwriter, who reunite in Paris upon the release of the formers memoirs. When the stars long-suffering assistant unexpectedly quits, the two are forced into an awkward working relationship, where suppressed emotions can no longer be kept in check.
Premiering to great acclaim as the opening night of the 2019 Venice Film Festival, The Truth is a very special cinema experience: a gentle and moving exploration of reality and fiction, family, performance, and the great spectacle of life. Its a love letter to mothers and daughters everywhere.
