According The Hollywood Reporter, Diane Lane is going to star in HBO's upcoming film Cinema Verite. The movie is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the groundbreaking documentary An American Family.

Lane is going to play Pat Loud, the mother and main character of the documentary, which showcased an intimate look at a Santa Barbara family.

When An American Family premiered on PBS in 1973, the show "stunned viewers by showing a real family's struggle with issues like divorce and sexual identity."

Now the documentary is looked at as a precursor of sorts to reality TV shows like Keeping Up with the Kardashians and others.
