Juliette Binoche and Guillame Canet reunite with acclaimed director Olivier Assayas (PERSONAL SHOPPER, CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA) for this wry, slyly seductive tale of sex, lies, and literature.
Set amidst the bohemian intelligentsia of the Parisian publishing world, NON-FICTION traces the romantic and emotional fallout that results when a controversial writer (Vincent Macaigne) begins blurring the line between fact and fiction, using his real-life love affairs—including a passionate fling with an actress (Binoche) who happens to be married to his editor (Canet)—as fodder for his explosive new novel.
Balancing dry wit with keen observations on the tensions between art, commerce, and technology, NON-FICTION is a buoyant, breezy delight from a master director at his most effortlessly brilliant.
"An enticing blend of the comic and the serious... The veteran Assayas, one of France’s most prolific writer-directors, turns out all kinds of films. Though austere artistic rigor is his most frequent trademark, he also has a rarely indulged gift (visible here as well as in 2008’s SUMMER HOURS) for bringing out the emotional richness inherent in conventional storytelling."
