The murder of a politician's aide scratches the surface of a shocking conspiracy and leads reporter Russell Crowe on a perilous hunt for the truth. Joined by a tenacious underling, the weathered newsman uncovers layer upon layer of deception and corruption that runs high up the Washington, D.C. power structure-and places both of their lives in jeopardy. Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Helen Mirren, Robin Wright Penn, Jason Bateman and Jeff Daniels co-star.
Directed by Kevin Macdonald; screenplay by Matthew Michael Carnahan and Tony Gilroy and Billy Ray, based on the BBC television series created by Paul Abbott.
