Film review: ‘Truth’ ★★

Forty years have passed since Robert Redford starred alongside Dustin Hoffman in All The President’s Men. The Watergate scandal engendered a suffix now synonymous with corruption and Alan J. Pakula’s masterpiece stands as an equally significant benchmark for representations of never-say-die journalism. In spite of brazenly obvious but noble intentions, Truth – in which Redford again features as a pioneering newsman – does not make the bench, or even the same ballpark, as its seminal cinematic forefather.

Truth is released in the UK on 4th March – visit CineVue here to read the full review.
