Little White Lies

Uncategorized

One of the longest-serving employees of the Moviehole gang, Katie's love of film, television and celebrity is clearly evident in any and each item she writes.

French film, “Little White Lies” has already hit the film festival circuit and among critics has been coined the “Gallic Big Chill” a snarky, albeit fitting nickname for the familiar theme and story that explores the strengths, strains, sexual and emotional entanglements in a group of lifelong friends who set out on vacation in the wake of tragedy.

Although the story, characters and scenes are familiar, there is something to be said about doing something well and director Guillaume Canet alongside his great ensemble cast gives “The Big Chill” respectable competition with better performances and authentic chemistry. Marion Cotillard, Francois Cluzet, Benoit Magimel, Gilles Lellouche and Jean Dujardin all convey a sense of ease around one another and easily convince the audience of their history over alcohol induced conversations and boating at the beach in Bordeaux. It’s convincing and a candid portrayal of friendship, making the two hour and thirty-four minutes running time (another common complaint) fascinating because the director and cast make it relatable and honest.
