Bored by the daily tedium of her office job, Kate (Ruth Wilson) is sleepwalking through life when a chance sexual encounter with a charismatic stranger (Tom Burke) awakens her. High on infatuation and the exhilaration of this new relationship, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to this mysterious new man. Hoping he will provide the escape she so desperately desires, she embarks on an emotionally dangerous journey that slowly begins to consume her. Adapted from Deborah Kay Davies’ acclaimed novel ‘True Things About Me,’ Harry Wootliff’s new film is an absorbing psychological drama.
“Fans of ‘The Souvenir’ will savour this elegant, intense UK drama, also starring Tom Burke, but driven by women before and behind the camera”. ~AroVideo
“All in all, it’s the strength of vision which impresses — the confidence and the brio of a film-maker adapting a novel and losing herself inside it, making no apologies for her interpretation.” ~Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily
“Harry Wootliff’s jaggedly grown-up psychological drama True Things thrives on the hot, tense chemistry between its two excellent leads: It’s what pulls the audience through an obstacle course of potentially implausible scenarios that instead ring stingingly true.” ~Guy Lodge, Variety
