Fact-based drama about a hotshot Washington journalist (Hayden Christensen) whose rising star is shot down when his editor (Peter Sarsgaard) discovers that many of the stories he wrote were total fabrications. While director Billy Ray's intelligent biopic takes a strong ethical stance, raising important questions concerning public trust issues, the film offers little insight into why its flawed protagonist indulged in such deception, resulting in a less-than-satisfying defense of journalistic integrity. Some rough and sexually crude language, sporadic profanity, as well as an instance of drug abuse. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
