Lionsgate has unveiled the first trailer for The Whole Truth, the upcoming thriller starring Keanu Reeves and Renée Zellweger.

Reeves plays defense attorney Richard Ramsay, who gets more than he bargained for when he takes on a case defending the son of his widowed friend (Zellweger). The young man is charged with murdering his father, a crime he initially confesses to. As the trial proceeds, naturally, it becomes very clear that not all is as it seems.

This looks like a relatively small picture, but one that could prove to intriguing and entertaining if all goes to plan. There’s a decent cast, including Gug Mbatha-Raw, and director Courtney Hunt previously impressed with her break-out debut Frozen River. We’ll see.

The Whole Truth will hit U.S. cinemas and On Demand on October 21.

Synopsis for The Whole Truth:

Defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Keanu Reeves) takes on a personal case when he swears to his widowed friend, Loretta Lassiter (Renée Zellweger), that he will keep her son Mike (Gabriel Basso) out of prison. Charged with murdering his father, Mike initially confesses to the crime. But as the trial proceeds, chilling evidence about the kind of man that Boone Lassiter (Jim Belushi) really was comes to light. While Ramsay uses the evidence to get his client acquitted, his new colleague Janelle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) tries to dig deeper – and begins to realize that the whole truth is something she alone can uncover. THE WHOLE TRUTH will be released by Lionsgate Premiere and it will be available in theaters and On Demand October 21, 2016.
