Juliette Binoche and Guillaume Canet reunite with acclaimed director Olivier Assayas 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 begins blurring the line between fact and fiction, using his real-life love affairs—including a passionate fling with an actress who happens to be married to his editor—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.
"Powered by a quartet of superb performances—including another jewel-like turn from Juliette Binoche—NON-FICTION begins as a talky study of the Parisian intelligentsia, then gradually tightens its emotional grip….It’s the latest evidence of the director’s gift for tackling grave subjects with the lightest of touches; the film flows airily along, then knocks you off-balance with the weight of its insights and implications." —Jon Frosch, The Hollywood Reporter “...With the spry and deceptively slight NON-FICTION Assayas has pivoted in a bold new direction: He uses the anxieties of the present to articulate the language that’s dragging us into the future.” —David Erlich, IndieWire
