Actors Lea Thompson & John Shea, Director Jim Hemphill, & Other Guests In Person!

THE TROUBLE WITH THE TRUTH: Limited Engagement!

Musician Robert (John Shea) is a perpetually starving artist with low overhead and minimal commitments. When Robert’s daughter announces that she’s engaged, he advises her against it - his own marriage to Emily (Lea Thompson) didn’t last, and he doesn’t understand why anyone would want to give up her independence. Yet when Robert and Emily reunite and dredge up old memories and hurts, both discover they have a lot of unresolved issues and that love, marriage and divorce aren’t quite as simple as they’d like. With Danielle Harris and Keri Lynn Pratt.

Reviews:
"Not since MY DINNER WITH ANDRE has a film consisting largely of a single conversation been such compelling viewing." The Hollywood Reporter
"by far and away, the best indie I’ve seen this year." Pop Bitez
"I can’t help but wonder if BEFORE MIDNIGHT, the third film in Richard Linklater’s trilogy starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, will play similar to how Jim Hemphill’s THE TROUBLE WITH THE TRUTH does." Film Threat
"There isn’t a false note in either the dialogue or the performances. The characters as written and played have such intricate backstories, such complicated mixtures of motive, that their evening grows uniquely, movingly suspenseful." The Village Voice
"A spare but winning romantic drama that taps into the same talky, intellectually stimulating vein as Richard Linklater’s SUNRISE/SUNSET collaborations with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, THE TROUBLE WITH THE TRUTH is cinematic catnip for anyone who fancies themselves a student of the human condition."
