Storyline

When a couple is taken hostage in their home by an intruder, a simple home invasion robbery turns into something much more complicated. The wife may, or may not, know the intruder; and the intruder may, or may not, have previously crossed paths with the husband. Can a couple survive once they have been exposed to each other for who (and for what) they really are? Is the intruder actually there just to rob them? What are they each trying to hide from him and from each other? Written by Anonymous

Give this movie a chance
29 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Truth may not have risen to a level that I would normally write a review -- except for the two reviews that precede it. One clearly appears to be blindly promotional. The other - really: it is based upon the reviewer having watched the opening scene and then skipping through to the end. In the words of Rodney King: "Can we all try to get along here?".

Though it features three established actors, it is pretty clear that In Truth was made on a relatively small budget. Nonetheless, it kept me interested and curious as to how "the truth" would come out. And how that truth came out was among the more impressive aspects. There were no "aha" moments. Rather, the writing, the direction and the performances were sufficiently nuanced that there were no WTFs. The acting? Actually quite good. Brendan Sexton's early scenes were an effective combination of engaging and threatening. Comely Erin Cardillo ranged well between feisty and combative and vulnerable. John Heard -- aging and overweight? Duh. His was an aging and overweight character! He did fine.

Call it a poor man's "Desperate Hours" if you will. But it was watchable and fun, and deserves better than skipping through. Not a 10, but at least a 7.
