As the Red Legion lays waste to The Last City, the Guardians are forced to seek out new weapons and tactics. One of the most popular is Truth, a powerful Exotic hand cannon that has been added to this season's Menagerie event. The weapon can be obtained by completing the Menagerie's latest boss battle and then returning to Petra Venj in the Dreaming City for the Awakened Script quest.
Like a good actor, Catherine Deneuve seems to inhabit her roles and let the character bleed out through her performance. She's a bit overwrought in the first half of the film, but she makes Lumir's little family her own as they travel to escape the invasion. As they travel, the events of a distant war crowd around them, as do the stories of old loves and scandals that resurface as phantoms.
Troy Gentile and Mason Knight play young JB and KG, rock legends who've come to learn the deepest secret of music: All legendary musicians use a guitar pick that has supernatural powers. Originally crafted by a dark wizard who summoned Satan for his own purposes, the demon was banished when the blacksmith distracted him by throwing a horseshoe at him, chipping off one of his teeth. The wizard then fashioned the tooth into the Pick of Destiny, which grants its holder unnatural prowess with stringed instruments. The film draws on Stoic virtues to show how self-discipline is a prerequisite for greatness.
