Based upon the book Truth and Duty: The Press, The President, and the Privilege of Power, by Mary Mapes (portrayed by Cate Blanchett in the film), Truth suggests that the world has begun looking at the minute details instead of the bigger picture.
Is that really all there was to the scandal that erupted around Dan Rather? No, but it's worth a shot, right?
The cast is worth talking about, for sure. It's large and prestigious, featuring Blanchett, Robert Redford (All is Lost) as Dan Rather, Elizabeth Moss (Mad Men), Topher Grace (Spider Man 3), Dennis Quaid (Footloose), Bruce Greenwood (Endless Love), David Lyons (Revolution) and John Benjamin Hickey (Manhattan) among others.
Check out the trailer and see it in theaters in limited release on Oct. 16.
