    Nothing But the Truth is like listening to the fourth-best debater in middle school present a term paper called "Politics, Power and the Media." show more

    Film Threat

    It is a rock-solid entertainment, made by adults, starring adults, and intended for adults. show more

    Lurie hits closer to the bone here than he did in his ham-handed "The Contender" (2000). show more

    J. Hoberman Village Voice

    In the spirit of its title, Nothing but the Truth pivots on a plot twist that's both good and fair. And kudos to the ever-earnest Beckinsale for surviving a prison brawl as splatterific as anything Mickey Rourke had to endure in "The Wrestler." show more

    Manohla Dargis The New York Times

    Nothing but the Truth has nothing much at all to do with the historical record, which wouldn't be bad if it offered something persuasive and worthwhile in return, like a reckoning of journalism and its abuses. show more

    Lurie spins off into invention like a "Law & Order" writer on deadline, scrambling the issues so thoroughly it's no longer clear what, if anything, the movie is meant to address. show more

    My cousin Jenny Odle Madden is in this movie I have been looking for it to come out too. I asked the local "Artsy" movie theater and they said it would come out sometime in the new year. The lady I talked to said she had heard about the movie. Try calling your local "artsy" theater maybe you will get results
