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.
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.

Power for the oppressors
Being the country where the movie industry thrives the most, it's only natural that a lot of the scripts, are actually about that same country's history
I've seen a lot of american movies, based on true political events that have continuously shocked me to my core, on how powerful law enforcement and government institutions keep getting away with the most inhuman actions, and even worse, these actions being completely ignored or supported by the people
I get it, the political climate in the US will make people dislike the movie if they tend to support a specific political color, given the interventionists, however as a non-american I appeal everyone to look away on political ideology and really absorb the message, as being ignorant is no longer an excuse. It's not about politics, race or whatever other topic that keeps dividing people, it's about the total lost of humanity
As a movie is well executed and conveys the event's story line in a concise and organized fashion. Adam Driver delivers, and the high score goes for the message and awareness!
