"All witnesses lie. All that remains for you to decide is why."

Lionsgate have recently released their first trailer for Courtney Hunt's (Frozen River) The Whole Truth.

Despite featuring Keanu Reeves (John Wick), Renée Zellweger (Bridget Jones's Diary) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle), legal drama The Whole Truth has somewhat slipped off the radar.

Reeves here plays defence lawyer Richard Ramsay, who takes on a personal case when he swears to his widowed friend, Loretta Lassiter (Zellweger), that he will keep her son Mike (Gabriel Basso) out of prison. Charged with murdering his father, Mike initially confesses to the crime. But as the trial proceeds, chilling evidence about the kind of man that Boone Lassiter (Jim Belushi) really was comes to light. While Ramsay uses the evidence to get his client acquitted, his new colleague Janelle (Mbatha-Raw) tries to dig deeper and begins to realise that the whole truth is something she alone can uncover..

Written by Rafael Jackson, The Whole Truth has yet to secure a UK release date but is out in US cinemas and on demand now.
