Overview
From the Academy Award®-winning* director Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs), and starring Mark Wahlberg (Planet of the Apes), Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible II) and Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), The Truth About Charlie is an explosive re-make of the original hit thriller, Charade.

Regina (Newton) returns home from vacation to find her husband Charlie murdered and three violent strangers claiming Charlie cheated them out of millions. But when she accepts the help of a mysterious stranger (Wahlberg), Regina plunges into a world where double-cross turns into triple-cross and trust turns into the deadliest weapon of all. A spectacular, roller coaster thrill ride, The Truth About Charlie will keep you guessing right up to the gripping conclusion!

*Best Director, The Silence of the Lambs, 1991.
