This witty, resonant and fast-talking comedy of art, adultery and midlife crises from modern master filmmaker Olivier Assayas probes the foibles of a quartet of middle-age friends caught in the throes of a fast-changing world. Non-Fiction is powered by superb performances including another pitch-perfect turn from Juliette Binoche as Selena, an actress in a long-running television show that she despises; her husband Alain (Guillaume Canet), a Parisian book publisher struggling to adapt to the new digital landscape; the moderately successful novelist Léonard (Vincent Macagine), who specializes in auto-fiction (and affairs), and his wife Valérie (Nora Hamzawi), chief-of-staff for a demanding politician. During intense conversations over espresso, wine, smoking, and sex, there is a constant struggle to reconcile the push and pull contradictions of the rise of digital culture and the subsequent decline of everything analog. Assayas engagingly and slyly explores the impact of the fast-changing cultural and technology shift on these fascinating individuals, their discontents and our collective contemporary civilization.
