Review

Blanchett is excellent as usual as are the supporting cast and Robert Redfords teeth. The movie is entertaining if predictable from the off. Nothing special but worth a watch if you’re out of options.

Newsroom done a story arc loosely based on the story of Truth which is done much better as it’s got Aaron Sorkin behind it and it’s fiction. If you’ve seen Newsroom, Truth won’t be as enjoyable.

2.5 Stars (2.5 / 5)
