GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK is a refreshingly spare reflection on a controversial and difficult time ... More

GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK is a refreshingly spare reflection on a controversial and difficult time in the 1950s and, at the same time, an explosive examination of the current American news landscape. Brilliantly choreographed and co-written by director George Clooney, the film illuminates the burden of courage in a free press at odds with both its government and its corporate parent. Clooney's ingenious use of archival footage adds to the great sense of fear and incredulity that these events took place in America. The film's greatest contribution may be to remind audiences that "Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it."
