Official UK Trailer for ‘True Things’ Starring Ruth Wilson & Tom Burke
“You need to find your tribe.” Picturehouse has unveiled an official UK trailer for True Things, an indie drama that first premiered at the 2021 Venice Film Festival last fall. It also played at the Toronto, London, and Stockholm Film Festivals last year. The film follows a young woman living on the fringes of society who becomes intoxicated by a stranger who overwhelms her quiet life. She lives in a small town on the water in the UK, and is lonely and just wants to meet a nice man. But she ends up falling for a complete asshole, and the film is supposed to be a lesson in how this can happen and how women need to watch out. But it’s just painful. Ruth Wilson stars with Tom Burke, Hayley Squires, Elizabeth Rider, Frank McCusker, and Ann Firbank. I saw this in Venice and did not like it much. But that’s just my own take. Give it a look.
Here’s the official UK trailer (+ UK poster) for Harry Wootliff’s True Things, direct from YouTube:
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. True Things is directed by British filmmaker Harry Wootliff, making her second feature film after directing Only You previously, as well as a few other short films. The screenplay is co-written by Molly Davies and Harry Wootliff, adapted from the book written by Deborah Kay Davies. This initially premiered at the 2021 Venice Film Festival last year. Picturehouse will debut Wootliff’s True Things in UK cinemas starting on April 1st, 2022. No US release is set yet. Who wants to watch this?
