Cesc Gay’s moving film “Truman” captured five Goya Awards (Spain’s equivalent of the US Oscars) this year, including Best Picture, Director, Actor (Ricardo Darín), Supporting Actor (Javier Cámara), Original Screenplay (Cesc Gay and Tomàs Aragay), not to mention many other awards throughout the world. Julián, a stage actor diagnosed with terminal cancer, has determined to forego further treatment and, instead, to appreciate his remaining days. His lifelong friend Tomàs, a teacher who emigrated to Toronto to start a new life, is unsure he will be able to help his friend. Nonetheless, he travels to Madrid to assist in whatever way he can. The two find their friendship immediately revived. Together, they visit old haunts as Julián tries to right old wrongs and, most important, seek a new home for his beloved bullmastiff Truman. Told with tenderness and humor, “Truman” tells the story of a man facing his death in the best way he can. “Truman” is multilayered, honest and moving, presented in a way which avoids cloying sentimentality in favor of gentle laughter. In Spanish with English subtitles, 108 minutes, not rated.
