TRUE THINGS

Harry Wootliff

Bored by the tedium of her office job, Kate (Ruth Wilson), a single woman on the edge of her thirties, is sleepwalking through life in a dreary coastal town when a chance sexual encounter with a charismatic stranger (Tom Burke) ignites in her a passionate, potentially destructive obsession. High on infatuation and the exhilaration of this new relationship, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to this mysterious man, whom we know only as Blond on account of his scruffy dye job. 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’s acclaimed novel, ‘True Things about Me’, Harry Wootliff’s new film is an intense and compelling psychological drama that boasts a pair of extraordinary lead performances.
