Films that merge comedy and drama, friends and family, and memory and hope rarely come along. French box-office sensation LITTLE WHITE LIES is a sparkling comedic drama from Guillaume Canet, the writer-director of the worldwide smash hit TELL NO ONE. Bringing together the top names from France's current generation of actors, including Jean Dujardin, Marion Cotillard and Francois Cluzet, Canet weaves a joyous and heartfelt film out of the dilemmas of eight thirty- and forty-something close friends.
-Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
"Pretty easy to take, and not just because of the lovely photography of the French coast, all oyster farms and pink wine and long dinners under the trees. Because there are also these wonderful performers."
-Stephen Whitty, NEWARK STAR-LEDGER
With its nostalgic soundtrack of classic hit songs from Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Nina Simone and others, LITTLE WHITE LIES is a contemporary spin on THE BIG CHILL, a generational statement on youthful frivolity giving way to middle-aged pleasures and sorrows, with a finely observant eye on modern day relationships. This is a wonderful film that is great for friends and a glass of wine.
