Nothing But the Truth stars Kate Beckinsale as a journalist who uncovers a scandal, outing a CIA operative in the process, then goes to jail for refusing to reveal her source.  It’s just the kind of ripped-from-the-headlines thriller that audiences love to not see (see also mega bombs Rendition, Lions for Lambs).  You may also notice that the film parallels the Judith Miller/Valerie Plame case, only in real life, Judith Miller was sort of complicit in the whole outing Valerie Plame because her husband refuted bogus Iraq intel thing and subsequent cover up, not some über principled martyr.  It’s all part of Hollywood’s upcoming series devil’s advocate biopics.  Next up, Milos Foremans’s Hitler: Not Such a Dick?
