George Clooney writes, directs, and acts in this movie starring David Strathairn as Edward R. Morrow. In the early 1950s, the threat of Communism created an air of paranoia in the U.S. and exploiting those fears was Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin. However, CBS reporter Morrow and his producer Fred W. Friendly (Clooney) decided to take a stand and challenge McCarthy, exposing the fear monger he was. Although their actions took a personal toll on both men, they stood by their convictions and helped bring down one of the most controversial Senators in American history. 90 min.
