TRUMAN
2015, FilmRise, 108 min, Dir: Cesc Gay

Winner of five Goya Awards including Best Film, this thought-provoking take on mortality stars Ricardo Darín as Julian, a working actor who has just received a diagnosis of terminal cancer. When old buddy Tomas (Javier Camara) arrives to visit, he finds Julian more concerned about the fate of his dog, Truman. “Cesc Gay’s wise, wistful and well-observed film about two friends enjoying a final reunion in the shadow of impending death is by turns amusing and affecting — and quite often both at once.” - Joe Leydon, Variety. In Spanish and English with English subtitles.
