Good Night And Good Luck (2005) (C)
"An electrifying movie event. One of the year's best..."
Good Night and Good Luck takes place during the early days of broadcast journalism in 1950's America.
It chronicles the real life conflict between television news pioneer Edward R. Murrow (David Strathairn) and Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee.
With a desire to report the facts and enlighten the public, the groundbreaking Murrow, and his dedicated staff - headed by his producer Fred Friendly (George Clooney) in the CBS newsroom - defy corporate and sponsorship pressures to examine the lies and scaremongering tactics perpetrated by McCarthy during his community witch hunts.
This film is rendered in stunning black and white cinematography and includes Robert Downey Jr., Patricia Clarkson and Jeff Daniels in its all-star cast. -- (C) Sony Pictures, 2005, USA/France/UK/Japan.
