True Things

True Things

62nd TIFF: Greek Premiere

Kate is sleepwalking through life when a chance sexual encounter with a charismatic stranger awakens her. High on infatuation, Kate is headed for an intoxicating car crash… Α cautionary tale of a destructive sexual relationship that is both complex and ordinary – a relationship so familiar to us that it’s almost a rite of passage. A highly subjective and intimate love story of sorts, which looks at the fragility of a woman’s sense of self, showcasing in its lead performances the range of the UK’s most dynamic performers: a sharp and empathetic chronicle of the mores of modern love.
