    Review: The 'Little White Lies' That Bind Are Explored In This Leisurely Gallic Dramedy

    The nature of what keeps a long-term friendship together over the years is somewhat ephemeral. There is the trust and confidence that comes with knowing someone intimately, seeing them at their best and worst, and being there for them without judgment. But it's also built on shared values, small moments and significant times shared, building a collective history that binds dates and places with deep emotional resonance. But, everyone also has their secrets, and even the best of friends will often keep their own fears or secret desires to themselves, not only for the sake of a friendship but for their own private reasons as well.

    REVIEW | Redford's "The Conspirator" Can't Do the Lincoln Legacy Proud
