Watch the whole truth 2016 full movie online. A defense attorney works to get his teenage client acquitted of murdering his wealthy father.
Keanu Reeves as Richard Ramsay, longtime personal friend and family lawyer to the late Boone Lassiter (Jim Belushi), a rich Southern blowhard found stabbed to death in his bedroom. When the cops arrived at the scene, Boone’s teenage son Mike (Gabriel Basso), by all reports a promising college-bound kid, was kneeling beside the body and said something to the officers that sounded like a confession. Mike hasn’t spoken since, but he’s on trial for the murder, and it’s Richard’s job to get him off, despite what seems like overwhelming evidence to suggest that Mike killed his father.
There’s something wrong about this arrangement, If Richard was Boone’s lawyer, and Boone is now dead, should he really be defending the No. 1 suspect? And why, if history has shown that wives are often responsible for such crimes, is no one taking a closer look at Boone’s widow, Loretta (Zellweger), whom evidence suggests may have been the victim of physical abuse and repeated infidelity? Even the camera seems to be avoiding her, at least at first, as Zellweger appears discreetly over Richard’s shoulder, fretfully attending her son’s trial, but getting suspiciously little screen time for someone who surely knows more than she’s letting on. And then there’s the ludicrous detail of Mike’s silence: The young man refuses to utter a word in his own defense, until the last minute, when he suddenly insists on taking the stand — a decision that makes Richard extremely nervous, as the lawyer has no idea what his client might say.
