About the Movie
In 1974, 24 year-old Francis Wetherbee, a bank teller who is the subject of small-town envy and gossip, disappears from her hometown of Smithville, Texas two weeks after her fiance's bank is robbed. Her car is dredged from the bottom of a local river but it yields no clues. After a vigorous but futile search for the missing woman, the authorities give up, and Francis recedes into legend--until the case is revisited nearly 40 years later when key figures in her life come forward with theories and clues surrounding her disappearance. The film then morphs from documentary style to narrative as the odyssey of Francis' life unfolds for the audience and the truth is revealed.
This movie was absolutely breathtaking. It was happy and beautiful but at the same time tragic. Would recommend.
A must see!
Not quite a documentary or straight narrative, The Teller and the Truth is a wonderful blend of both that creates a unique and unforgeable film. The central plot revolves around the aftermath of a small town bank robbery and reminds me of a Terrence Malick film in both the way the story is conveyed and the way the film is shot. I highly recommend this film!
A beautiful, intriguing cinematic journey
Watching this film was a unique and enchanting experience. Story telling with a twist. Making you stop and wonder about the world of the film, about your own world. A beautiful search for truth, it was an atmospheric adventure. With magnetic, emotive, gorgeous performances by the lead actors.
