Between facts and fiction

Determining whether LOVETRUE is a fiction film or a documentary is as difficult as it is pointless, for Alma Har'el's second feature length film derives its power and poetry from the grey area where the two meet. Mixing fly-on-the-wall recordings with staged scenes where her subjects interact with actors playing themselves at different stages of their lives, Har'el explores the subject of love from the point of view of a single dad surfer in Hawaii, an Alaskan stripper and a New York-based family of musicians.
