Juliette Binoche, Catherine Deneuve, and Ethan Hawke in The Truth.

Hirokazu Kore-eda’s latest movie focuses on a mother and daughter, and the lies households tell each other to boost their own desires to be kept in mind well. Catherine Deneuve stars as Fabienne, a famous starlet whose new narrative sets off triggers in between her and her daughter, Lumir (Juliette Binoche), who can’ t stand the idealized history Fabienne is attempting to offer thepublic From our review:
Instead of focusing entirely on Lumir and Fabienne, Kore-eda takes a broad scope, which provides The Truth some of his hallmark heat. The movie has less of a sense of seriousness than the majority of of his other work– After Life had a weeklong time frame enforced on its characters, for circumstances, and catastrophe appeared to loom just off- screen in every frame of Thiefs and No One Understands. Fabienne isn’t on death’s doorstep, and the worry in between her and her daughter has actually been developing for a long time. Fabienne’s narrative does trigger arguments, however the blowouts aren’t what change Fabienne’s heart. As it does in real life, change takes place gradually here, and incrementally.

Jon Stewart’s new movie stars Steve Carell as a political strategist who, after seeing a viral video of a Wisconsin male (Chris Cooper) standing up for his town’s undocumented employees, chooses to turn the recently minted star into the town’s mayor. The opposing party soon sends their own strategist (Rose Byrne) to attempt to hinder him. It’s amusing and earnest, however its take on American elections feels hopelessly out of step with this specific political minute. From our review:
Instead of affecting the strength of Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker’s famous doc The War Space, or providing the punchy breakdowns of The Big Short, Stewart focuses on the human aspect. Jack’s advocates are wacky, the opposition is a caricature, and the media hyping up the showdown is the obstructiveenemy The option makes it one big sitcom (complete with Office-ready campaign operatives played by Topher Grace and Natasha Lyonne). Stewart plainly did his research– the movie feels like it’s being propped up by the last 3 years of Atlantic publication cover stories– however the message does not have any sense of bite or power.
