The Unbelievable Truth1989

  • 4.1
A comedy of errors surrounding a beautiful college bound girl disturbingly preoccupied with the threat of nuclear destruction in THE UNBELIEVABLE TRUTH. Nevertheless, she falls in love with a handsome ex-con who is rumored to have murdered, many years before, the father of his high school sweetheart. A warm-hearted satire about idealistic young love, capitalist moralizing in the home, forgiveness, skepticism and the need for work one loves. The stellar cast includes Edie Falco, Matt Malloy and Paul Schulze. This was writer and director Hal Hartley's feature film debut.

Genuine and funny.

A delightful surprise!

One of my favorite movies by one of my favorite directors.

Adrienne Shelly is stunning!

Nice movie. Great characters. Artful and engaging without being heavy or stressful.
