About the Movie
Defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Keanu Reeves) takes on a personal case when he swears to his widowed friend, Loretta Lassiter (Renée Zellweger), that he will keep her son Mike (Gabriel 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 (Jim Belushi) really was comes to light. While Ramsay uses the evidence to get his client acquitted, his new colleague Janelle (Gugu Mbatha- Raw) tries to dig deeper – and begins to realize that the whole truth is something she alone can uncover.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Trundling along on the drone of Ramsay's pseudo-hardboiled voice-over, "The Whole Truth" plays like an especially claustrophobic courtroom procedural, drably photographed and generically framed.
Rotten: Viewers who've spent any time watching TV courtroom dramas will probably believe they've figured out "The Whole Truth" from practically its opening scene, and despite a few minor twists along the way, chances are, they have.
Rotten: Instead of building tension, "The Whole Truth" lets it bleed out.
Rotten: [W]hat might have been a tantalizing whodunit about the less-than-gleaming gears of justice ... is instead a curiously uninvolving exercise in procedure.
Great mystery movie
I am not one who needs to be surprised by the outcome of a movie to enjoy it. If you are a person who loves mystery stories you may find that you figure this out before the film ends. With that said it is done in a beautiful way, the casting is great and the flashbacks don't seem choppy or out of place. I would watch it again.
I tried to watch it but it is just rubbish ..... don't waste your money
