“More than most docudramas about fairly recent events, it is so well written and acted that it conveys a convincing illusion of veracity.”~Stephen Holden, New York Times
Aroview: A multi-layered and incrementally tense newsroom docudrama that captures the controversy that befell Dan Rather and CBS after they broadcast an investigation in George W. Bush's military service.
The story anchors around Rather's producer, Mary Mapes, a juicy role for Cate Blanchett, who conveys Mapes' passion and folly with satisfying depth and emotional range.

2 stars (Good Try) Cate does well however the screenplay is described as a drama and so you don't know if what you are being told is the truth or not which makes the whole exercise pointless. Truth or not the ending is crap.~tubbs
