The Trouble with the Truth (2012)
Musician Robert (John Shea) is a perpetual starving artist with low overhead and minimal commitments. When Robert's daughter announces that she's engaged, he advises her against it - his own marriage to Emily (Lea Thompson) didn't last, and he doesn't understand why anyone would want to give up their independence. Yet when Robert and Emily reunite and dredge up old memories and hurts, both discover they have a lot of unresolved issues and that love, marriage and divorce aren't quite as simple as they'd like. With Danielle Harris and Keri Lynn Pratt. -- (C) Official Site … More

Critic Reviews for The Trouble with the Truth
Who knew My Dinner with Andre could be reworked into such an engaging romantic comedy?
Jim Hemphill's "The Trouble with the Truth" is a pleasant surprise that gets better as the movie unfolds.
Although they talk enough to qualify for radio, John Shea and Lea Thompson make the high-wire act of "The Trouble With the Truth" a convincing, moving and provocative two-hander.
A divorced couple rehash their relationship in this touching indie drama.
[An] intimate, honest exploration of relationship dynamics, regret and the enduring messiness of love.
While it never quite lives up to its lofty inspiration, particularly in an unsatisfying final act, it's engagingly written and well played by both leads.
A spare but winning romantic drama that taps into the same talky, intellectually stimulating vein as Richard Linklater's Sunrise/Sunset collaborations with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy.
Wise, warm, sexy and sophisticated with tender, well-nuanced performances by John Shea and Lea Thompson.
Shea and Thompson are up against it due to the basic premise alone, so they could be somewhat forgiven for stumbling here or there. But they don't...
A delectable dialogue driven movie over dinner. And a banquet of conversation in the ongoing battle of the sexes that is simultaneously bracing, witty, invigorating, stinging, solemn and funny.
