Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett star in Truth, based on the riveting true story of one of network news’ biggest scandals. As a renowned producer and close associate of Dan Rather (Redford), Mary Mapes (Blanchett) believes she’s broken the biggest story of the 2004 election: revelations of a sitting U.S. President’s military service. But when allegations come pouring in, sources change their stories, document authenticity is questioned, and the casualties begin to mount. This dramatic thriller goes behind the scenes to expose the intricacies of journalistic integrity and what it takes to reveal the Truth.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Truth's terrific cast and compelling message are often enough to overcome its occasionally didactic and facile dramatization of a nuanced real-life tale.
Behind The Lens
Debbie Lynn Elias
Truth boasts another juggernaut by Cate Blanchett that is buoyed by an incredibly strong adaptation of [Mary] Mapes' book, eliciting all the intricate minutiae and ethics of not only investigative journalism but the absurdity of corporate blinders.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Truth is a fact-based drama about a moment in journalistic history that eventually led to the venerable Dan Rather (Robert Redford) leaving his job at 60 Minutes. It deals with thought-provoking issues related to standing up for what you believe, staying firm in your convictions, and working hard to achieve your aims. The news business can be pretty frustrating, which leads to characters drinking to let off steam, yelling and screaming, and swearing a lot (including "s--t" and "f--k"). Images of Abu Ghraib are shown, wartime carnage is discussed, and there's a brief glimpse of a nude photo.
