THE REPORT is a thriller based on actual events. Idealistic staffer Daniel J. Jones (Adam Driver) is tasked by his boss Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening) to lead an investigation of the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program created in the aftermath of 9/11. Jones' relentless pursuit of the truth leads to findings that uncover the lengths to which the nation's top intelligence agency went to destroy evidence, subvert the law, and hide a shocking secret from the American public. THE REPORT is written and directed by Scott Z. Burns, and the film also stars Jon Hamm, Sarah Goldberg, Michael C. Hall, Douglas Hodge, Fajer Kaisi, Ted Levine, Jennifer Morrison, Tim Blake Nelson, Linda Powell, Matthew Rhys, T. Ryder Smith, Corey Stoll, and Maura Tierney.
As one of President Obama's first official acts, he signed Executive Order 13491, which restricted all government agencies to lawful interrogation approaches used by the Military and required that the International Committee of the Red Cross be granted access to detainees held in U.S. custody. This executive order, which effectively banned the CIA program, was codified into federal law by the McCain-Feinstein Anti-Torture Amendment of 2015, which passed in the Senate with an overwhelming bi-partisan vote.

How long have you been working on this project, Dan?
Five, wow. Every day? Nights? Weekends?
It's very consuming.
Do you have a relationship, Dan? Family? Just trying to get a better sense of who you are.
When it started I was seeing someone. But the nature of the work, the hours... I wasn't a very good partner.
Five years, and it could all go away. Just vanish in the face of these allegations.
