Movie Review: True Story

True Story 's manipulative nature betrays itself at the bitter end. Review by Matt Cummings In Rupert Goold's True Story , NY Times writer Mike Finkel (Jonah Hill) is disgraced when news of his embellishment of a featured piece leads to his dismissal and blackballing. While desperately searching for another patron, he receives a call that the murderer Christian Longo (James Franco) has been using Finkel's name and title during his run from the law.

After Megan's boyfriend (Mark Webber) attempts an ill-advised marriage proposal at their friend's wedding - in which she also sees her father cheating with another woman - Megan runs off to
