I don't watch many movies, but once in a while, I would try to see one, and very rarely it would turn out to be a good movie.
I am drawn to woman of courage, extraordinary, and with strong personalities! Such movies as The Duchess, The Women, and Closing the Ring are my favorites.
This week, I would like to introduce you to Nothing But the Truth, starring Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Angela Basset, Allen Alda, Noah Wyle, Vera Farmiga, and David Schwimmer.
Rachel Armstrong (Kate Beckinsale) is a photojournalist who writes for a local newspaper, and a room mom at her son's school. During a field trip Rachel encounters a conversation that changes her life and her family forever.
She does what it was right in her heart, and that is to stand up to protect her source. She chose ethic, and goes to jail to keep a promise.
Matt Dillon plays the bad prosecutor, Patton Dubois, trying his best to force Rachel to disclose her sources, while Alan Burnside (Alan Alda), Rachel's attorney defends her honor.
Rachel Armstrong holds her position with grace. She doesn't know why people think of her as a bad mother for what she believes in. She questions her attorney if the public would view a man as a bad father if he does the same: stand up and protect his source!
This is a great movie to watch! The story will keep you enthrall, and the ending will leave you with full admiration!
