Lionsgate Premiere just released a new trailer for a film most moviegoers have never heard of, The Whole Truth. The R-rated crime thriller’s heading to theaters in limited release and On Demand on October 21, 2016 and has Keanu Reeves as an attorney and Renee Zellweger as the mother of the accused murderer he’s defending. The cast also includes Jim Belushi (seen but not heard in the trailer), Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Gabriel Basso.
The Plot: Defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Reeves) takes on a personal case when he swears to his widowed friend, Loretta Lassiter (Zellweger), that he will keep her son Mike (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 (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 realize that the whole truth is something she alone can uncover.
