f15d409ef0d2dd66517a60e998226f3b74edbf29 A David and Goliath true story as award-winning news program producer Mary Mapes falls foul of the corporate might of CBS in the search of the truth.

Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine, The Aviator), as usual, is commanding and resolute as Mapes in this intelligent, driven drama. Whilst occasionally slipping into soap-box political statements about the nature of high-end journalism and moral responsibility, debut helmer James Vanderbilt (writer of Zodiac and White House Down) handles the material well.
