Is it better to tell a kind fib or be absolutely honest? With whom can you share your true feelings and opinions? Our misanthrope, Alceste, demands total honesty from all. Ironically, he can’t help but love the socially intelligent Célimène. In this intimate rom-com we watch the witty banter of friends, the unraveling of love, and observe how the manners of French society in 1666 are not all that different from our reality tv stars of today. Is there middle ground between extreme honesty and cliquey gossip?
