Picturehouse Entertainment has announced they will release TRUE THINGS - the eagerly awaited collaboration between BAFTA and Golden Globe winning actress and producer Ruth Wilson (Luther, The Affair and His Dark Materials for HBO) and BAFTA nominated director Harry Wootliff (Only You) - on the 11th March 2022 in cinemas across the UK and Ireland.
Written by Wootliff, TRUE THINGS is based on Deborah Kay Davies' 2010 novel, True Things About Me, and also stars Tom Burke (The Souvenir, Only God Forgives, Mank) and Hayley Squires (I Daniel Blake) alongside Wilson.
BBC Film and BFI-backed (awarding National Lottery funding), TRUE THINGS had a world premiere at the Venice Film Festival 2021 and a UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival, where director Wootliff scooped the £50,000 IWC Schaffhausen Filmmaker Bursary award in association with the BFI. Wootliff was chosen by a panel comprised of actor and filmmaker Phoebe Waller-Bridge and BFI CEO Ben Roberts, for one of the biggest financial prizes in the UK independent film industry.
The story centres around a woman whose life is turned upside down after a chance encounter with a charismatic stranger.
Bored by the daily tedium of her office job, Kate (Ruth Wilson) is sleepwalking through life when a chance sexual encounter with a charismatic stranger (Tom Burke) awakens her. High on infatuation and the exhilaration of this new relationship, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to this mysterious new man. Hoping he will provide the escape she so desperately desires, she embarks on an emotionally dangerous journey that slowly begins to consume her.
