Reviews

Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times | April 18, 2015

It's as good as any work I've seen in a film in 2015, and "True Story" is one of the better movies to come along this year.

Peter Rainer Christian Science Monitor | April 17, 2015

Director Rupert Goold keeps things appropriately creepy, but True Story is no Capote.

Lisa Kennedy Denver Post | April 17, 2015

True Story digs deeper into the cultural fascination with killers and attempts a potent corrective along the way, reminding us who's been lost but also how justice isn't just another gripping procedural.

J. R. Jones Chicago Reader | April 16, 2015

The script is first-rate, questioning whether any story can really be credible when both the writer and the subject have everything to gain from it.

Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch | April 16, 2015

While the movie sometimes seems like faux Fincher, the symbiotic acting, artful imagery and punchline ending turn "True Story" into credible entertainment.

Claudia Puig USA Today | April 16, 2015

True Story is an intrinsically fascinating and occasionally riveting tale marred by unnecessary embellishments.

Cary Darling Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com | April 16, 2015

[An] intermittently fascinating movie version from first-time features director Rupert Goold and stars Jonah Hill and James Franco in roles that, for once, don't ask them to be caricatures of arrested adolescence.
