Kate Beckinsale, Vera Farmiga, Alan Alda, Matt Dilon. Such great cast
alone was enough "quality stamp" for me to get me interested in this
film. I must say Nothing But The Truth has exceeded my expectations
many times over.

Based on a true story, the basic plot line has close focus on a
reporter of a Washington D.C. major newspaper Rachel Armstrong (Kate
Beckinsale) who after writing an article on the US president's actions
revealing the identity of a secret CIA agent Erica Van Doren (Vera
Farmiga) is being pressured to reveal her secret source by the
government in such ways she could never have imagined.

The story flows flawlessly, picks up nicely and slowly drags you into a
twist of controversial emotions, drawing the characters with all their
pros and cons and letting you slowly get acquainted with their moral
inner fights.

Beckinsale and Farmiga have a great energy between them that will have
you forget you're watching a movie and catch your breath at the few
scenes at which they confront each other. Alda, as usual is a brilliant
defender of humanity and freedom. Dilon's take on the "hyenous
prosecutor" is so tremendously real will all aspects of belief in his
work it's simply scary.

Alik Sakharov great DoP work on this film shows every muscle moving on
the actors' faces, which underlines the great work of the actors.

This film definitely proves Lurie knows what he's doing out there and
I'll definitely have my eye on his future work.
