In TRUTH, Cate Blanchett gives a performance to rival her Oscar-winning turn in Blue Jasmine, starring alongside Academy-award winner Robert Redford and a cast of local Australian talent, including Noni Hazlehurst, Rachael Blake, Steve Bastoni and Martin Sacks (to name a few). Based on a riveting true story of one of network news’ biggest scandals, 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.
