Keanu Reeves has been killing it lately in a variety of offbeat projects, from John Wick to The Neon Demon. He even acquitted himself quite nicely in The Bad Batch, which is more than we can say for either of that film’s actual leads. Now this fall he’ll return to more straightforwardly dramatic fare with The Whole Truth, the new legal thriller from Frozen River director Courtney Hunt.
Written by Nicholas Kazan, The Whole Truth centers on a shocking murder trial. A teenage boy (Gabriel Basso) has been charged with murdering his father (Jim Belushi), and his mother (Renée Zellweger) hires defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Reeves) to defend her.
