The Unbelievable Truth (1990)


Hal Hartley’s first feature film, shot in the early fall of 1988. A comedy of errors surrounding a beautiful college bound girl disturbingly preoccupied with the threat of nuclear destruction. 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.

Also available in the United Kingdom on DVD and Blu-ray from Artificial Eye.
