I’ve been asked a lot over the past several weeks, what is it like to watch Robert Redford play you in a film? The answer is simple: surreal. In some ways you can’t help but feel honored that one of the greatest actors of his or any generation was cast to portray you on the big screen. And yet such feelings are almost overwhelmingly bittersweet for me.
The period during which Redford so adeptly channels my persona in the movie “Truth,” just so happens to also be the darkest chapter of my life.
