Writer turned first-time director James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man) attempts to dramatize the 2004 scandal over the leaked (and as it happened faked) memo about George W. Bush's military service that helped sink the career of "60 Minutes" correspondent Dan Rather. Robert Redford (seriously?) is our man Rather. Cate Blanchett is news producer Mary Mapes. The rest of the cast is similarly top-loaded with Topher Grace, Dennis Quaid, Elisabeth Moss, Bruce Greenwood, Stacy Keach and Dermot Mulroney all looking way to conspicuous in their small roles. 121 minutes R.
