Nothing But the Truth 2008 108 R 3.5 out of 5 ducks
Washington DC. Newspaper columnist Rachel breaks a story that a fellow mom at her child's school is a CIA operative Erica who investigated the assassination attempt of the President, Erica found no government conspiracy, but he ordered a military strike against Venezuela anyway. When the story hits, she's hauled into court that her source revealed classified information, and that leak violated federal law (there is a ruling that does not protect sources in such cases). With impressive swiftness, she's hauled into court to reveal her source, where she refuses to speak, and is jailed for contempt. The CIA can't find the leak and blames Erica, she resigns in disgust. Rachel is nominated for a Pulitzer (she doesn't win), but still refuses to name names. A right-wing nut shoots and kills Erica in front of her home. Chief of Staff Stan admits to the prosecutor he was her source, was at a party, had been drinking, and he talked with Rachel. He's not happy with that -- he wants the original source (Stan was the confirming source) -- and she stays in jail. Rachel learns that her husband is seeing another woman. The Supreme Court rules against Rachel, but the judge tells both lawyers he's going to release her; the prosecutor disbands the grand jury, effectively releasing her before the judge does. Rachel is out, then she's arrested and charged with criminal contempt of court. She agrees to plead guilty in exchange for a visit with her son. As she's on the bus to prison, we see the source is Erica's young daughter in her son's class. Moving film reel
