Truth” centers on beloved newsman Dan Rather and veteran news producer Mary Mapes as they break the story that ultimately broke their careers. The film depicts the 2004 controversy now known as Rathergate, wherein Rather falsely reported on CBS’ “60 Minutes” that George W. Bush had gone AWOL during the Vietnam War. The ensuing firestorm shook CBS News to its core and forced Rather to resign. “Truth” depicts how the lies made their way to air.

The film, which enjoyed its world premiere at TIFF earlier this month, stars Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett as Rather and Mapes, respectively. The drama also features Topher Grace, Elisabeth Moss and Dennis Quaid and marks writer-director James Vanderbilt’s first effort behind the camera.

“Truth” hits theaters on October 16. Watch the trailer above, courtesy of Yahoo!.
