true things

Kate's routine life is disrupted after a sexual encounter with a man recently released from prison. Director Harry Wootliff immerses us in the process of a middle-aged woman with no life horizons who feels her body vibrating again next to a guy who doesn't suit her. A bold Ruth Wilson (His Dark Materials, The Affair, Luther) embodies this vulnerable protagonist who allows herself to be trapped by Tom Burke (The Souvenir, Mank) in a story that is as exciting as it is destructive. A drama about the danger of abandoning oneself to misunderstood romanticism that in its final part leaves behind the British scenery and enters Andalusian landscapes.
