News & Interviews for Nothing But the Truth
Critic Reviews for Nothing But the Truth
A finely-crafted film of people and ideas, of the sort more common before the movie mainstream became a sausage factory.
Every once in a while, for reasons as random as a Hollywood executive's taste or an economic meltdown, a perfectly decent movie slips through the cracks, never receives a theatrical release and is relegated to the purgatory called straight-to-DVD.
Writer-director Lurie makes dramas that whole-headedly engage ethical quandaries yet dodge easy judgments.
It's Kate Beckinsale who is fantastic and she is able to hold the strong premise long enough to keep my interest in a politically-charged thriller.
I thought the performances were great, particularly Vera Farmiga.
Audience Reviews for Nothing But the Truth
Really good political thriller! The cast is absolutely fantastic...
Nothing but the Truth is a well-crafted, gripping and tense thriller that features fantastic performances from Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Vera Farmiga and Alan Alda.
A compelling story and strong acting make this a winner. Dillon plays a real son of a bitch.
Nothing But the Truth Quotes
|Albert Burnside:||Some time ago, I began to feel the personal human digression on Rachel Armstrong. And I told her that I was there to represent her and not her principle. And it was not until I met her that I realized that with great people there's no difference between principle and the person.|
|Erica Van Doren:||I know you can't tell me who your source is. I respect that, okay? I know about keeping secrets.|
|Albert Burnside:||Sometimes a mistake is like wearing white after Labour Day, and sometimes a mistake is invading Russia in winter!|
|Albert Burnside:||A man can live a good life, be honorable, give to charity, but in the end, the number of people who come to his funeral is generally dependent on the weather.|
