Most recently, actress Kate Beckinsale revealed that she was "heartbroken"
over the release of her 2008 film Nothing But The Truth after it failed to
make it on the big screen.
Despite this, the film still managed to resonate with audiences
on a deep level as Beckinsale shines through with her performance.
According to Hollywood.com critics who viewed the film, tipped the actress to get her first Oscar nod for the portrayal of Rachael Armstrong, a reporter who would rather go to jail to stay true to her convictions rather than name a source.
The studio behind the movie, Yari Film Group, was forced into involuntary bankruptcy which resulted in a straight to DVD in 2009.
Beckinsale tells Britain's Total Film Magazine:
To be honest, I was a little bit heartbroken after doing that movie. I was really
pleased with it and proud of it. I was nominated for a Critics' Choice
award for it, and the next day the film company went bankrupt and the
movie never came out. I just felt really bruised by that.
Still, the actress maintains her optimism about all the hard work that has gone
into the film. Clearly, this was a passion project for the star.
Like many other films, budget cuts can pose a significant challenge, particularly when
trying to reach a larger audience to get the best exposure. Although Nothing But The Truth never made it to the big screen, it does not overshadow the wealth in the performance and the audience appreciation of the value of a great film.
