Synopsis

DIRECTOR: Alan J. Pakula

WITH: Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford, Jack Warden, Jason Robards

Is the President of the United States a criminal? Hoffman and Redford play two investigative journalists in Washington DC who follow the trail of evidence which leads from a minor burglary to the White House itself. The celebrated dramatisation of the Watergate scandal is enjoyable on many levels: as a rich psychological thriller, as an evocation of the smoky world of hot metal newsrooms and mysterious calls from payphones, and as an exploration of the nature of political corruption. Perhaps more relevant now than it has ever been.

 

Restorations and Rediscoveries is presented in partnership with Adder Technology
