THE TRUTH MATTERS.
Shortly after 9/11, a group of Washington reporters find out that the Bush Administration is preparing to attack Iraq based on lies and faulty intelligence. This story is interesting as a reminder for reporters to always dig deeper and not just blindly trust the most obvious sources. But as a movie it doesn’t have much of a pulse, delivering predictable political points in a clumsy way. The cast may be fine, but the characters never come alive and the supporting female roles are wasted.
