Little White Lies (Les Petits Mouchoirs)

From the director of "Tell No One"

Guillaume Canet has assembled an outstanding cast of some of France’s finest actors – headed by the incandescent Marion Cotillard – to make an entertaining and acutely observed drama of manners. A group gathering is hosted every year by a couple at their beautiful beach house where they kick off their summer vacation by celebrating the birthday of one of the gang. Fun, fine wine and seafood mix with sun and sand as they all leave their city stresses and inhibitions behind. But this year is different. One of them is badly injured in a serious motorcycle accident just as they are about to leave Paris for their seaside reunion. His friends flock to his bedside, where their unconscious pal is still alive but in intensive care. What to do? Stay in Paris to be by his side, or leave for their vacation having been assured that there is nothing they can do? By the time they return he should be conscious and up for visitors. After some intense discussion, they decide to head off for enjoyment and relaxation. Over the course of the next week, all the tensions within this group erupt. One of them, happily married, finds to his great surprise that he is wildly attracted to one of his best friends, a man. Claiming he’s not gay, he upsets his friend and stirs the suspicions of his loving and loyal wife, who wonders what’s amiss. The others all have similar challenges and issues, as a veritable stew of raging hormones and frustrations bubbles to the surface. Some run into old lovers, while others pine for lovers who have no time for them anymore. Through a succession of incidents, the group is pulled apart and dragged together by their ties of loyalty and marriage. – Toronto International Film Festival Official Trailer
