A Golden Globe nominee for Best Picture and winner of the National Board of Review Best Picture of the Year, this film was also honored as the opening night selection of the New York Film Festival. This is the story of Edward R. Murrow and his television broadcast producer, Fred Friendly, who successfully confronted the hysteria created by the political bully, Senator Joseph McCarthy. George Clooney directs and costars with David Strathairn in this story about a vital chapter of recent American political history, brought to life with intimacy and artistry. The film has relevance to today regarding our civil liberties, an often spineless news media and the extreme political divide in the United States.
