Signature Entertainment will release Nothing But The Truth on Blu-ray from May 20th. We have three copies of the Blu-ray to give away to our readers. Washington DC political journalist Rachel Armstrong (Kate Beckinsale), writes an explosive story about a government scandal in which she reveals the name of a covert CIA agent (Vera Farmiga). When a special government prosecutor (Matt Dillon) demands she divulge her source, she refuses and finds herself behind bars, struggling to defend the principles she has based her career upon. Nothing But the Truth is based on the real life story of journalist Judith Miller who was jailed in July 2005 for outing a CIA agent and refusing to reveal her source before a federal grand jury. Kate Beckinsale (The Aviator) who plays Rachel Armstrong, the journalist in crisis and Oscar-nominated Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air), who stars as the CIA agent, deliver a strong performance in a film that walks the fine line of a controversial and current topic. Beckinsale and Farmiga are joined by Oscar-nominated actors Matt Dillon (Crash), Angela Bassett (Malcom X), and Alan Alda (The Aviator). According to director Rod Lurie (The Contender), Farmiga was so convincing that when she was set up on an actual polygraph test machine for a scene, the polygraph operator showed him that the machine says she was telling the truth. Roger Ebert hails Nothing But the Truth as a finely-crafted film that respects the intelligence of the audience, it contains real drama, it earns its suspense, and it has a point to make.Director: Rod Lurie (The Contender, The Last Castle, Resurrecting the Champ)
