The Screen Guide

Robert 'Bob' King is an international star TV reporter, home from the US after years covering the big conflicts. John is an academic who's come to confront him with the book he's written exposing the lies of that career. It's a conflict of style as well as substance - the rich, physically imposing Bob, the nerdy, sweating John. At heart, the film is about ruthlessness, the point at which someone trades honesty for personal gain.
