Dan Rather Faces A Hard 'Truth' In Exclusive Clip Featuring Cate Blanchett And Robert Redford

The CBS anchor's fall from grace hits the big screen on Oct. 16.

If a top-notch movie is built on the foundation of its casting choices, then "Truth" may be one of the year's sturdiest. As evidenced in this clip -- exclusive to The Huffington Post and its parent company, AOL -- Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford make for one of 2015's finest onscreen pairings. Blanchett portrays the venerable producer responsible for the widely criticized "60 Minutes" story that led to the 2005 downfall of Dan Rather, played by Redford. The episode plays out like a taut newsroom drama in "Truth," which marks the directorial debut of "Zodiac" and "Amazing Spider-Man" writer James Vanderbilt. The movie opens Oct. 16.
