Little White Lies trailer online
There are some great things to be said about Little White Lies, from the star, writer and director of Ne le dis à personne (Tell No One) (Filmstalker review) and starring French actors such as François Cluzet, Marion Cotillard and Benoît Magimel, that's really about all that you need to know to get interested.
However add in a group of friends on holiday and an accident that permeates through the whole group, and suddenly the truth of events and secrets comes to the fore, and all those little white lies that they told each other begin to break apart.
The blurb of the film reads well:
Every year, Max, a successful restaurant owner, and Véro, his eco-friendly wife invite a merry group of friends to their beautiful beach house to celebrate Antoine's birthday and kick-start the vacation. But, this year, before they all leave Paris, their buddy Ludo is hurt in a serious accident, which sets off a dramatic chain of reactions and emotional responses. The eagerly anticipated vacation leads each of the protagonists to raise the little veils that for years they have draped over what bothers and upsets them. Pretenses become increasingly hard to keep up. Until the moment when the truth finally catches up with them all...
It does get you interested for Little White Lies, and coming from Guillaume Canet I'm immediately interested, his work on Ne le dis à personne (Tell No One) (Filmstalker review) was excellent and sparked a U.S. remake which, I have to say, could actually be better even though Canet's film is very strong.
The trailer for Little White Lies does hint at some strong moments, and the actors look very relaced with each other. Offering laughs to some serious emotional moments, here's the trailer for Little White Lies:
