An uptight and conservative woman, working on tenure as a literacy professor at a large urban university, finds herself strangely attracted to a free-spirited, liberal woman who works at a local carnival that comes to town.
TRU, 37, is a serial bed-hopping lesbian who cannot commit to a relationship or a job for long...that is, until she meets ALICE, 60, a beautiful widow, who has come to town at the last minute to visit her daughter, SUZANNE, 35, a too-busy corporate lawyer and Tru's friend. Alice and Tru begin to forge an unlikely friendship...and more. Suzanne, who has a deeply conflicted relationship with her mother and a complicated past with Tru, becomes increasingly alarmed at the growing bond between Tru and her mother. Tensions escalate after Suzanne witnesses an intimate moment between them. She tries to sabotage the budding romance, but it backfires, as Tru Love is hard to contain.Written by
Most movies treat the notion of love and age as a laughable combination. Tru Love does not. It treats its characters with dignity and tenderness, and the result is a fine exploration of love and connection. Alice, recently widowed, comes to Toronto to visit her daughter Suzanne. Suzanne is cold and distant, and uses her job as a reason to avoid engaging with everyone, including Alice. Even her house is impersonal. Alice, on the other hand, is of an age when she has nothing to lose. She breaks our hearts as she tentatively allows herself to follow her unexpected attraction to a rudderless young woman, a friend of her daughter's. None of this sinks into mawkishness or cheap shocks. The writers and the director clearly love each character for her strengths and weaknesses. Each of the actresses, especially Kate Trotter, is marvellous. And for once, Toronto is presented as Toronto. Don't miss this movie!
