Nothing But the Truth ()

directed by
featuring Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Angela Bassett, Alan Alda, Vera Farmiga

A tense political drama ripped straight from the headlines, Rod Lurie's Nothing But the Truth tells the tale of a Washington, D.C. reporter who is targeted by the government after refusing to reveal her source for a story that identified an undercover CIA operative. Rachel Armstrong (Kate Beckinsale) is an ambitious young reporter working at the Capitol Sun-Times, one of Washington, D.C.'s biggest newspapers. When the paper published Rachel's incendiary story revealing the identity of covert CIA agent Erica Van Doren (Vera Farmiga), charismatic special prosecutor Patton Dubois (Matt Dillon) demands that she reveal her source for the story. With the support of her husband, Ray (David Schwimmer); her editor, Bonnie (Angela Bassett); and the paper's in-house attorney, Avril (Noah Wyle), Rachel defies Patton's request and all hell breaks loose. When Rachel likewise refuses to reveal her source even to U.S. District Court Judge Hall (Floyd Adams), she is cited with contempt of court and thrown in the D.C. Detention Center until she decides to cooperate. As Rachel's attorney, Albert Burnside (Alan Alda), argues her case all the way to the Supreme Court, the public begins to question why the embattled reporter would sacrifice both her family and her career to maintain her journalistic integrity. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Hide synopsis

Very close to the truth

by John M on May 31, 2011

This movie is a truly gripping and overly accurate description of true events. IT comes very, very close to the whole true story. It also covers a debate as to a free press or national security. The script and acting are excellent. The movie moves along well, it does have a few twists in it however it is never boring as movie like these can be, It is also insightful as the nature of our government and will give you lots to think about. Very enjoyable over all.
