Where the Truth Lies screened on Day 6 of the Toronto International Film Festival. There is a decent amount of nudity but IMHO not enough for it to ensure an NC-17 rating.
A couple of minutes into the movie and you see Rachel Blanchard submerged in a bathtub nude. It is shot in such a way so you don’t really see anything. They show this, as well as Rachel strategically nude in a crate several times as the mystery unravels through flashbacks. The second time you see her in the bathtub, you can see her nipples and maybe a hint of bush.
The first real nude scene is when you see Kevin Bacon having sex with Rebecca Davis doggy style. You can see Rebecca’s boobs and ass. When Kevin goes to answer the door, you may be able to see a gyno shot. They then show Rebecca lying on the bed and then standing up fully naked.
During a flashback, you see Kevin Bacon groping Rachel. She’s in some lingerie thing. There are two other hookers in the room blowing Colin Firth. The hookers both appear to be bottomless and you can see their ass and maybe more.
At about the 27 minute mark, Kevin Bacon has a sex scene with Alison Lohman. This is shot from the side so you can see closeups of Alison’s breasts as Kevin removes her top. He then proceeds to finger her but you can’t really see anything. You can see more shots of Alison’s breasts and ass as Kevin continues to have sex with her. Alison later flashes back to this scene and you can see more shots of her breasts while she’s standing up.
About 68 minutes into the movie, Alison is drugged by Colin Firth and begins to undress. Kristin Adams then shows up. Colin unbuttons her top and we see one of her breasts. Kristin and Alison then begin to make out and we get several views of both their breasts. We can also see Kristin performing oral sex on Alison but we can’t really see anything. The next morning, Colin shows Alison some polaroids of her lesbian encounter and we can again see Alison’s breasts in a couple of the pics. Alison then gets up to get dressed and we get a couple of very quick peeks at her breasts.
The big nude scene is at around the 80 minute mark. We see Rachel nude as Colin and Kevin make out with her. We then see Rachel riding Colin. Its pretty distant but they’re both facing the camera so we can see Rachel’s pretty hairy bush (supposedly she wore a merkin). Kevin then does Rachel missionary style and we see more views of Rachel’s breasts and ass. When both Kevin and Colin are done with Rachel, we see her on the couch topless until Kevin throws her a blanket.
