The Unbelievable Truth is a comedy of errors surrounding a beautiful college bound girl (Adrienne Shelly) disturbingly preoccupied with the threat of nuclear destruction. Nevertheless, she falls in love with a handsome ex-con (Robert John Burke) who is rumored to have murdered, many years before, the father of his high school sweetheart. A warm-hearted satire about idealistic young love, capitalist moralizing in the home, forgiveness, skepticism, and the need for work one loves. The stellar cast includes Edie Falco, Matt Malloy and Paul Schulze. This was writer and director Hal Hartley's feature film debut.

This is a great first film! I would put it up there with Spike Lee's "She's Gotta Have it" and Jim Jarmusch's "Stanger Than Paradise"
