TIFF 08: NOTHING but THE TRUTH
My faith in the TIFF is restored. After the disappointment last night of Gigantic it was nice to see a five, or at least 4, star movie again. Nothing but The Truth tells the story of a case that seems alike to that of Valerie Plame Wilson but takes many deviating turns, the least of which is (spoiler) the Plame Wilson character, played beautifully and eloquently by Vera Farmiga, dies, but the main character is the newspaper columnist, played well and capably by Kate Beckinsale, who reveals the CIA agent's identity. The film after that goes on with many surpirising twists and turns beyond those I have already spoiled ("Sorry"). It is film with stunning performances and is very much worth seeing.
