“More than most docudramas about fairly recent events, it is so well written and acted that it conveys a convincing illusion of veracity.”~Stephen Holden, New York Times

Aroview: A multi-layered and incrementally tense newsroom docudrama that captures the controversy that befell Dan Rather and CBS after they broadcast an investigation in George W. Bush's military service.

The story anchors around Rather's producer, Mary Mapes, a juicy role for Cate Blanchett, who conveys Mapes' passion and folly with satisfying depth and emotional range.
