Juliette Binoche and Guillaume Canet reunite with French master Olivier Assayas for this wry, slyly seductive tale of sex, lies and literature. A controversial writer (Vincent Macaigne) begins blurring the line between fact and fiction, using his real-life affairs, including a passionate fling with an actress (Binoche) married to his publisher (Canet), as fodder for his explosive new novel. Meanwhile, the publisher is himself simultaneously entranced by, and fearful of, the lovely young consultant (Christa Théret) his company has hired to oversee its “digital transition.” Personal peccadillos are peppered with clever conversations about the position of books in the age of Twitter and Instagram. With Nora Hamzawi, Pascal Greggory. (France 2018) 108 min.
