Based on the 1998 bestselling novel by Wally Lamb, I Know this Much is True follows the parallel lives of identical twin brothers, played by three-time Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo (Spotlight, Avengers), one of whom is a paranoid schizophrenic.
Directed and adapted by multi-award-winner Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond The Pines), I Know This Much Is True has an 8.2 rating on IMDB. As The Los Angeles Times says, “In a transformative feat that seems all but guaranteed to earn him an Emmy nomination, Ruffalo plays both the Birdsey brothers. He lost 20 pounds before production began, then spent 16 weeks filming his scenes as the aggressive Dominick. Then he took six weeks off, gained 30 pounds by subsisting on oatmeal and mashed potatoes, and returned as the more vulnerable Thomas.”
The phenomenal cast includes Oscar winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Emmy winner Rosie O’Donnell (SMILF), Emmy nominees Kathryn Hahn (Mrs Fletcher, Transparent) and Rob Huebel (Transparent), Golden Globe nominee Archie Panjabi (Run, The Good Wife), and Oscar nominee Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers).
