Assigned with leading the Senate’s investigation into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program, U.S. Select Committee on Intelligence staffer Daniel Jones (Adam Driver) spent over half a decade attempting to uncover the truth of the country’s use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” post-9/11. Facing incredible resistance from both the CIA and government officials, Jones’s work in collaboration with the Senate Intelligence Committee and Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening) would turn the tide on the public’s understanding of their Government’s use of torture, and how much was truly being kept secret during the escalation of the War on Terror. In the spirit of ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN, writer-director Scott Z. Burns’s riveting political thriller brings the compelling true story of the investigation to life.
