Stranger Says: Starring Juliette Binoche and Guillaume Canet, Non-Fiction tells the story of a Parisian writer who blurs the line between fact and fiction by drawing on his real-life love affairs in his incendiary new novel, setting off a chain reaction in his social circle. This flirty, chatty, smart comedy is French and bohemian as hell: Everyone is cheating on each other, having a midlife crisis, expounding on the nature of romantic relationships, and voicing loud opinions about technology. But Non-Fiction feels like breezy, seductive, European fun. So much so, you’ll need a cigarette afterward. (JASMYNE KEIMIG)
SIFF Says: The struggles of a staid publisher and a rumpled novelist to adapt to the new digital media world, and the impermanence thereof, is complicated (because this is a French comedy) by adultery.
