Journalist Rachel Armstrong (Kate Beckinsale) turns Washington on its ear when she outs a casual acquaintance (Vera Farmiga) as a CIA agent. The government’s formidable prosecutor (Matt Dillon) sends Rachel to jail for contempt, where she discovers the true impact of her decision. David Schwimmer and Alan Alda co-star in this drama from Rod Lurie, the politically savvy filmmaker behind The Contender and “Commander in Chief.”
The only good thing I have to say about this movie is that I learned about The Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982. It felt more like a Lifetime original movie than a political thriller. It is a sad story, I did not like the characters and the dialogue was uneven. I should have taken a better look at who was in this film before I added this to my Netflix queue as I try to avoid anything with David Schwimmer (grudgingly I will admit he was okay in Curb Your Enthusiasm). I am giving this one 2.2 stars. I did not like this movie however I did like the song at end Nothing but the truth by Coby Brown.
