    Synopsis


    Truth
    James Vanderbilt wrote and directed this docudrama about the controversial 60 Minutes exposé on then-president George W. Bush's military service that aired just before the 2004 election. Cate Blanchett stars as Mary Mapes, the producer of CBS's newsmagazine series 60 Minutes, which was anchored at the time by the legendary Dan Rather (Robert Redford). Mapes gets a tip from a new source who claims to possess explosive documents proving that Bush received privileged treatment in the National Guard to avoid service in the Vietnam War. After the documents are presented to the American people, a whirlwind of controversy about the their veracity pits Mapes and Rather in a battle for their journalistic lives. Topher Grace, Dennis Quaid, and Elizabeth Moss co-star in this ensemble journalistic thriller. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

      While showcasing the conservative need to deny that which goes against their own beliefs, the movie shows the difficulties journalists face today in their efforts to cover political stories. The acting is superb and Cate Blanchett is up to the task of equaling the legendary Robert Redford.

      This re enactment of the "fall" of news anchor Dan Rather (Rober Redford) and reporter Mary Mapes (Kate Blanchard) - as their team discovers untruths about George W. Bush during the 2004 Presidential elections. This film is full of great actors,doing a fine job!

      If it's from Sony Pictures Classics, I'm taking a look. With SPOTLIGHT taking the movie about investigative new media slot in cinemas in 2015, this film was sadly overlooked. Cate Blanchett is her character, but when is she NOT?

      Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford are definitely worth watching! This doesn't rank up there with great journalism movies like "All The President's Men", "Network", or this year's "Spotlight", but this is just on the outside.

      Very enlightening story of the integrity of journalism and the political and economic business it is. Redford and Blanchett hit it out of the park

      Was expecting such a better movie due to the cast and plot line of the film but was very disappointed with the outcome of the film.
