This unconvincing crime thriller follows disgraced New York Times writer, Michael Finkel, (Hill) who befriends Christian Longo (Franco) – a man accused of murdering his wife and three children, yet finally caught in Mexico masquerading as none other than Finkel himself. True Story’s undoing is that it lacks the very thing Finkel himself so desperately prized: the perfect angle. It’s a film lost in its search for meaning, that's crippled by emphatic dialogue, and for a true story, it’s surprisingly fake.
