Nothing But the TruthCast: Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Alan Alda, Vera Farmiga, Harry Lennix, David Schwimmer, Angela Bassett, Noah Wyle
In Washington, D.C., a female reporter faces a possible jail sentence for outing a CIA agent and refusing to reveal her source.
Nothing But The Truth is an upcoming 2008 thriller written and directed by Rod Lurie. The story centers on female newspaper reporter (Kate Beckinsale) who outs a CIA agent and is imprisoned for refusing to reveal her source. Actor David Schwimmer plays Beckinsale's husband and Angela Bassett is the supportive editor in chief at the Washington newspaper where Beckinsale’s character works. Actor Noah Wyle portrays the lawyer placed in charge of defending her. The cast includes Matt Dillon as the prosecutor, Vera Farmiga as the CIA agent, and Alan Alda as the attorney who tries to free the reporter from jail.
Nothing but the Truth parallels the case of Valerie Plame, whose status as a CIA agent was exposed in the media after her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, wrote a 'New York Times' op-ed piece charging the Bush administration with manipulating intelligence to justify the invasion of Iraq.
