On the morning of September 9, 2004, veteran CBS News producer MARY MAPES (Cate Blanchett) believed she had every reason to feel proud of a broadcast journalism job well done. By the end of the day, Mapes, CBS News, and the venerable CBS News anchor DAN RATHER (Robert Redford) would be under harsh scrutiny.

The evening before, 60 Minutes II had aired an investigative report, produced by Mapes and reported on-air by Rather, that purported to reveal new evidence proving that President George W. Bush had possibly shirked his duty during his service as a Texas Air National Guard pilot from 1968 to 1974. The piece asserted that George W. Bush had not only exploited family connections and political privilege to avoid the Vietnam War by joining the Texas Air National Guard, but he had failed for many months to fulfill his most basic Guard obligation-showing up on base.

Mapes and her team of researchers had scrambled under a tight deadline to pull together both on- air eyewitness testimony and newly-disclosed documents to make their case, and they felt confident that their story was solid. In the lead-up to the 2004 Bush v. Kerry presidential election, the "Bush-Guard" story could have had profound ramifications.

But within days after the story broke, George W. Bush's military service record was no longer the focus of media and public scrutiny. Instead, it was 60 Minutes, Mapes, and Rather who were under question: the documents supporting their investigation were denounced as forgeries, and the 60 Minutes staff was accused of shoddy journalism or, perhaps worse, accused of being duped. Eventually, Mapes would lose her job and reputation. Dan Rather would step down prematurely as CBS News anchor.

How did attention end up focused on the journalists who questioned the official version of the story? How did the minutiae of document typefaces, line breaks, and superscripts become seemingly more important to the national discourse than the question of whether the President had failed to fulfill his military obligations? Have journalistic integrity and independence been fundamentally altered in today's newsrooms and boardrooms?

TRUTH is based on Mary Mapes' memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power (2005, St. Martin's Press).



"Robert Redford plays CBS News Anchor Dan Rather, and Cate Blanchett is his producer Mary Mapes. This potent cinematic provocation reopens old wounds in ways you won't see coming."

Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE

"A real gem. James Vanderbilt makes an impressive directing debut. Cate Blanchett is outstanding as a woman who's smart, gutsy and always vulnerable. Robert Redford is excellent, one icon playing another. It's going to be a hot-button movie."

Mary Mapes


Mary Mapes

Mary Mapes has been an award-winning television news producer and reporter for twenty-five years, the last fifteen of them for CBS News, primarily for CBS Evening News with Dan Rather and 60 Minutes II.

She began her career in Seattle when, just out of college, she was hired to work as an assistant to camera crews at KIRO-TV. Moving quickly into editing, writing and producing, she won numerous awards for her work.

Joining CBS News in 1989, she made her reputation as a hard-charging producer based in Dallas. Always covering a wide range of stories, from natural disasters to international wars, from the death penalty to politics, Mapes was best known for breaking big stories at high speed and getting interviews when others could not.

She was the first to interview Karla Faye Tucker on Texas death row, an inmate whose case sharply challenged American perceptions of the kind of people facing execution. Crime and punishment have long been a focus of Mapes' work, which has included investigations and in depth examinations of what criminal justice means in America.

In 1999, she was briefly jailed for refusing to turn over her notes and source names to a Texas prosecutor.

In 2004, her last year with CBS, in addition to the George W. Bush National Guard story, she broke the stories of the existence of Strom Thurmond's unacknowledged biracial daughter, Essie-Mae Washington-Williams, and the Abu Ghraib prison tortures, for which she won a Peabody Award in 2005. Her work has been recognized with Emmys, Gracies, Freedom of Speech awards and many others. She lives in Dallas, Texas with her husband and son.


Dan Rather

With a famed and storied career that has spanned more than six decades, Dan Rather has been one of the world's best-known journalists for much of the last half century. He helped pioneer the very idea that television could be a place for news, and then kept that spirit of innovation alive by constantly pushing the boundaries of what video storytelling could accomplish. Along the way, his work ethic, nose for investigative reporting, and calmness and composure in moments of triumph and tragedy made him a respected voice that millions of people have trusted to make sense of a complicated world.

Rather's resume reads like a history book. He has interviewed every president since Eisenhower and personally covered almost every important dateline of the last 60 years. From his first big assignment at a local news station covering Hurricane Carla, to the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Rather was there reporting the news to America and the world. On the scene in Dallas, he was key in breaking the news of President John F. Kennedy's death, and uncovered key developments as a White House correspondent during the widespread criminal conspiracy known as Watergate. He was outside Martin Luther King Jr.'s jail cell in Birmingham and at the anchor desk for countless hours on 9/11 and the days that followed. He reported from the Berlin Wall when it fell, spent a year covering the jungle combat zones of Vietnam, and was forced off the air at Tiananmen Square when the Chinese government's crackdown began. And yet Rather's range was such that in addition to covering world-changing events, he quickly gained a reputation as a gifted, versatile, and nuanced storyteller whose reports rung with empathy and even humor when warranted.

Rather got his start in print, then moved into radio and local television news, before joining CBS News in 1962. He quickly rose through the ranks, and in 1981 he assumed the position of anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News-a post he held for 24 years. His reporting was featured across the network. It helped turn 60 Minutes into an institution, launched 48 Hours as an innovative fly-on-the-wall news magazine program, and shaped countless specials and documentaries. Upon leaving CBS, Rather returned to the in-depth reporting he always loved by creating the Emmy Award winning primetime news magazine and documentary program, Dan Rather Reports on the cable network HDNet. Now, building upon that foundation, he is president and CEO of News and Guts, an independent production company he founded that specializes in high-quality non-fiction content across a range of traditional and digital distribution channels.

While Rather has won all of the most prestigious journalism awards (many times over) and has reported from the majority of nations on earth, he considers himself first and foremost a Texan. A proud native son of Wharton and Houston, and a graduate of what is now Sam Houston State University, Rather's unique Texas phrases have become a hallmark of his winsome and approachable style to reporting and storytelling.


James Vanderbilt


James Vanderbilt has been pushing words around a page professionally ever since he graduated from the University of Southern California's Filmic Writing Program. A native of Norwalk, Connecticut, he sold his first screenplay 48 hours before graduating. It was promptly not made. He has written and produced numerous films, including ZODIAC which was nominated for a Writer's Guild of America Award for Best Adapted Screenplay and a USC Scripter Award, and WHITE HOUSE DOWN, which was not. His writing credits also include THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN films, THE RUNDOWN, THE LOSERS, and the upcoming INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE. He is a founding member of Mythology Entertainment, a company dedicated to story-driven entertainment and content. He lives in Malibu, California, with his wife and children. TRUTH is his directorial debut.


Bradley J. Fischer


Bradley J. Fischer began his career at Phoenix Pictures in 1998, rising through the ranks to Co-President of Production in 2007 and taking charge of the majority of the company's motion picture slate.

In 2012, Fischer formed Mythology Entertainment, a motion picture and television production company with partner James Vanderbilt (THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN, ZODIAC). WHITE HOUSE DOWN, directed by Roland Emmerich and starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, was the company's first project.

During his 13-year tenure at Phoenix Pictures, Fischer was instrumental in discovering, developing, packaging and producing many high-profile motion picture projects, producing a total of seven films over seven years. Among the films Fischer produced while at Phoenix was Martin Scorsese's SHUTTER ISLAND, based on the New York Times bestseller by Dennis Lehane, acclaimed author of Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone. After securing film rights to the book, Fischer sent it to screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis, with whom he developed the project. Scorsese and DiCaprio quickly signed on and the fully packaged project was set up on a production-commitment basis at Paramount Pictures shortly thereafter. Following its world premiere gala screening at the Berlin International Film Festival, SHUTTER ISLAND debuted to a $41 million opening weekend, which remains Scorsese's biggest opening to-date. It has since gone on to gross almost $300 million worldwide.

Among Fischer's other credits is the critically acclaimed David Fincher film ZODIAC, which he produced. An Official Selection of the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, ZODIAC stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. It was released by Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures to massive worldwide critical acclaim, and was one of the best-reviewed films of 2007. In 2010, ZODIAC was named one of the 10 best films of the decade by Entertainment Weekly, Time Out New York, The Chicago Tribune and The New York Post, among many other critics and journalists around the world.

Fischer also executive produced BLACK SWAN, directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Natalie Portman. The film was released by Fox Searchlight and received strong critical praise, going on to gross approximately $330 million worldwide and receive five Academy Award® nominations, including Best Picture and winning Best Actress for star Natalie Portman.

Among the upcoming projects Fischer is producing are THE OVERLOOK HOTEL (a prequel to Stanley Kubrick's THE SHINING) with Warner Bros. and the Stanley Kubrick estate, with Mark Romanek directing; THE UNPLEASANT PROFESSION OF JONATHAN HOAG, which Alex Proyas will direct from his own adaptation of the Robert Heinlein novella, THE BRIGANDS OF RATTLEBORGE by S. Craig Zahler, ALTERED CARBON by Laeta Kalogridis and David H. Goodman, based on the seminal sci-fi noir novel by Richard Morgan; and the thriller AMBULANCE adapted by Chris Fedak, which Phillip Noyce is attached to direct.

Mythology's next releases include TRUTH, starring Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford, which Sony Classics will open on October 16; and the Suge Knight documentary AMERICAN DREAM/AMERICAN KNIGHTMARE, directed by Antoine Fuqua, which Showtime premieres on September 26.

In 2006, Fischer was selected by the Hollywood Reporter for their 13th annual "Next Generation" special issue as one of Hollywood's top 35 executives under 35 years of age. In the Spring 2008 issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine, Fischer was profiled as a "Power Producer" and recognized as "one of Hollywood's most promising producers of sophisticated, challenging films."

In addition to his work at Mythology Entertainment, Fischer serves on the board of directors of the Stella Adler Academy of Acting in Los Angeles.

Fischer graduated from Columbia University in 1998 with a BA in Film Studies and Psychology and is a native of New York. He resides in Los Angeles with his wife Karen, daughter Olivia and baby boy Leo.
