The Whole Truth
Director: Courtney Hunt
Writer: Rafael Jackson
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Reneé Zellweger, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Gabriel Basso, Jim Belushi
Defense attorney, Richard Ramsay, faces a hopeless case defending Mike (17), who’s charged with murdering his father, Boone, and the evidence against him is substantial: a knife with his finger prints and a near confession. On top of that, Mike hasn’t spoken a word since the day of the crime. With no information from his client, Ramsay has little to work off, so he undermines the witness testimonies by detecting their half-truths, and in so doing he weakens the prosecution’s case. But it’s Mike who ends up telling the biggest lie of all. Or is it?
