“The political-investigation film to beat at next year’s Oscars.” – Helena Andrews-Dyer, The Washington Post
“A large-scale saga of corruption, justice, and overwhelming relevance, that’s at once gripping and eye-opening.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
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, which was created in the aftermath of 9/11. Jones’ diligent pursuit of the truth leads to explosive findings that uncover the length to which the nation’s top intelligence agency went to destroy evidence, subvert the law, and hide a brutal secret from the American public. Scott Z. Burns’ film adopts the dogged, intricate structure of the inquiry itself. It’s sober, detailed, and relentless, and casts a mesmerizing spell that places it among such paranoid classics as All The President’s Men and The Parallax View.
