When reality became entertainment, everything changed

From acclaimed director Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (American Splendor), Cinema Verite is the compelling, behind-the-scenes story of An American Family, the revolutionary 1970's PBS documentary that launched a new television genre - Reality TV. Pat and Bill Loud (Diane Lane and Tim Robbins) are approached by producer Craig Gilbert (James Gandolfini) to make television history - to become the first "real-life" family to allow cameras into their home and their private lives. Soon enough, the cameras reveal deep-seated family issues, revolving around the marriage, the children, and the emerging ambitions of eldest son Lance (Thomas Dekker). Also exposed is the ethical conflict between Gilbert and his fellow filmmakers (Patrick Fugit, Shanna Collins) as they embark upon a groundbreaking, unscripted journey where no one could imagine the consequences.
