Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Truth is a fact-based drama about a moment in journalistic history that eventually led to the venerable Dan Rather (Robert Redford) leaving his job at 60 Minutes. It deals with thought-provoking issues related to standing up for what you believe, staying firm in your convictions, and working hard to achieve your aims. The news business can be pretty frustrating, which leads to characters drinking to let off steam, yelling and screaming, and swearing a lot (including "s--t" and "f--k"). Images of Abu Ghraib are shown, wartime carnage is discussed, and there's a brief glimpse of a nude photo.

Sexual Content

Nude photo shown briefly.


Photos from Abu Ghraib are shown. Discussion of wartime actions and the carnage that results. Yelling, tension-filled conversations.


The strong emotions of the newsroom elicit words like "s--t," "ass," and "f--k."

Social Behavior

The truth will out. Also, have convictions, and stand firm when questioned.


Many mentions of CBS.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Lots of drinking, both socially and to excess -- especially when the main character goes through a period of professional frustration.
