Nothing But the Truth is a 2008 political thriller about a reporter exposing a government spy, inspired by the events of the Valerie Plame case. After an attempted presidential assassination, the U.S. government blames Venezuela and attacks Caracas in retribution. After a report surfaces that indicates that the Venezuelan evidence is questionable, journalist Rachel Armstrong (Kate Beckinsale) reveals D.C. soccer mom, Erica Van Doren (Vera Farmiga), as a secret CIA agent. With a political scandal brewing, Special Prosecutor Patton Dubois (Matt Dillon) presses the courts to put Rachel in jail for refusing to name the source for her explosive story. Rachel receives backing from her editor, Bonnie Benjamin (Angela Bassett), for upholding her professional integrity, but must endure public criticism and relentless political pressure for taking an unpopular stand. Attorney Alan Burnside (Alan Alda) fights her legal battles. Writer-director Rod Lurie ("The Contender") brings this timely account of the interconnected worlds of media and politics.
