Successful and self-assured book publisher Alain (Guillaume Canet)
is busy coping with the ins and outs of both his private and
professional lives. His relationship with his wife (Juliette Binoche)
has gone stale, he has to deal delicately with one of his long-time
authors (Vincent Macaigne), and in his enthusiastic embrace of
digital and social media Alain has hired an ambitious young woman
as the “head of digital transition”. A delicious comedy of manners,
Non-Fiction probes at what lies behind the actions of its ensemble
of characters and how they are affected by the hyperconnectivity
of today.

A new treasure from one of France’s most vital filmmakers.
Jon Frosch, The Hollywood Reporter

The frame holds steadier here; it’s the churning dialogue – funny,
seductive, always carving out fresh tributaries – that propels you
forward.
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

Canet and Macaigne are eminently watchable, but Juliette Binoche
quietly steals every scene.
