Critic Reviews for True Things

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7)

Another strong addition to the growing sub-genre of stories about people whose lives go to hell when they get involved with Tom Burke.

Despite strong performances from the two leads, the story sometimes feels inert, nothing like the love it wants to show.

September 12, 2021 | Full Review…

It's an absorbing, character-driven film that explores female sensuality and longing in all its complexity - and whatever your gender or preferences, its vexing central relationship may well ring a bell.

Harry Wootliff's doomed-pairing drama is brought compellingly to life by its two messy, complex leads.

September 4, 2021 | Full Review…

This is a strong, assertive, sexy story about and by women that every woman will in some way recognise, and many more men besides.
