Juliette Binoche and Guillame Canet reunite with acclaimed director Olivier Assayas (Personal Shopper, Carlos) 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.
“‘Non-Fiction’ is an enticing blend of the comic and the serious, a smart and sassy examination of the way we live now.” Kenneth Turan LOS ANGELES TIMES
“Smart, funny, and immensely entertaining. Binoche leads an exceptional cast in the dialogue-heavy film that perfectly balances drama with comedy.” Joe Friar THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE
Our world keeps changing. It always has been. The challenge is our ability to keep an eye on that flux and to understand what is truly at stake in order to adapt, or not. After all, this is what politics and opinions are about.
The digitalization of our world and its reconfiguration into algorithms is the modern vector of a change that confuses and overwhelms us. Digital economy infriges rules and often laws. Moreover it questions what seemed solid and granted in society. Yet, it dissolves on mere contact.
NON-FICTION does not attempt to analyze workings of this new economy, but rather to observe how those questions shake us, personally, emotionally, and sometimes humorously.
