Dir: Scott Z. Burns
Starring: Adam Driver, Annette Benning
From Steven Soderbergh‘s frequent collaborator, Scott Z. Burns (Side Effects), The Report is a blistering thriller based on actual events. Idealistic staffer Daniel J. Jones (Adam Driver) is tasked by his boss Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening) to lead an investigation of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program created in the aftermath of 9/11. Jones’ relentless pursuit of the truth leads to findings that uncover the lengths to which the nation’s top intelligence agency went to destroy evidence, subvert the law, and hide a shocking secret from the American public. This urgent film boasts a stellar ensemble cast including Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Sarah Goldberg (Barry) and Michael C. Hall (Dexter).
