Storyline

When novelist Eddy and his working wife Lilly invite two couples to dinner to greet the return of a long-absent friend, questions of fidelity and loyalty between thirty-something friends quickly arise and entangle the dinner of pasta and wine. Ambitious Dan and Charlotte are close to a falling out, and Alan and Alex are living on the edge of disaster, when Kate, the local cocaine runner, suddenly appears, seeking shelter from the police. Amid mixed feelings of guilt, remorse, unrequited love, anger, and anxiety, Eddy proposes that they play "The Truth Game" to cap the explosive evening. Written by Bob Lee

Gripping, realistic, entertaining, humorous.
21 July 2001 | by andywebb2001ukSee all my reviews

The Truth Game is an excellent example of British film making on a low budget. Set in London in the modern day has fine examples of acting dealing with emotive issues regarding relationships and friendships. The humour is sometimes controversial / dark and the language, though often strong is strikingly realistic. I found myself laughing at things that would normally be frowned at, but that is the skill of the script writing. The plot moves fast enough to keep your interest and the direction makes you feel that often you are part of the action.
