Tru Love

Directed by Kate Johnson and Shauna McDonald, this 2013 Canadian drama tells the story of a 60-year old woman named Alice, reeling from the recent death of her husband, who decides on the spur of the moment to visit her daughter Suzanne in the big city.

They have a strained relationship, and Suzanne ends up enlisting a friend named Tru (described in publicity for the film as a commitment-phobic lesbian) to spend time with her mother.

Tru Love has garnered some decent reviews. It screens Sunday Feb. 15 at the RPL Theatre at 9:30 p.m. Here’s the trailer:
