Truth

  • Director: James Vanderbilt
  • Genre(s): Biography, Drama
  • Rating: R
  • Running Time: 121 min.

In 2004, Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett), an award-winning CBS News journalist and Dan Rather’s producer, uncovered that a sitting US president may have been AWOL from the United States National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War. When the story blew up in their face, the ensuing scandal ruined Dan Rather’s career, nearly changed a US Presidential election, and almost took down all of CBS News in the process.

"Blanchett gives this dynamo of intelligence and doggedness a real human dimension that allows the propulsive drama to breathe; it’s another stellar performance that rates among her best."
- Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
"The keenly focused intelligence and low-boil intensity that James Vanderbilt demonstrated in his screenplay for “Zodiac” are on impressive display in Truth."
- Justin Chang, Variety
"To say Blanchett is good here is a grave understatement."
- Gregory Ellwood, HitFix
"Blanchett makes us feel the creeping horror of professional disgrace, the fear and stigma, however unfair Mapes argues her treatment may have been. We watch a polished professional come apart at the seams, caught up in self-incrimination and spiralling neurosis."
- Tim Robey, The Telegraph
"In the closing act, the film sharpens and becomes something far more compelling."
- Tom Huddleston, Time Out London
