Truman

  • Directed by Cesc Gay
  • Spain/Argentina, 2016, 108 mins., Spanish/English

Goya Winner for Best Film, Director, Actor, and Screenplay, Truman is a warm tale of friendship in the face of imminent mortality. Julián (Ricardo Darín), diagnosed with terminal cancer, is making the most of the time left to him. Tomás (Javier Cámara), who lives in Toronto, returns to Madrid unsure of how he can best serve his old friend. The two men wander old haunts, recall the past, try putting right a few old wrongs, and most important of all, seek a new owner for Julián’s beloved bullmastiff, Truman. Their rapport brings gentle laughter in a very moving story that earned the Audience Prize for Best Film at this year’s Portland International Film Festival.
