Adam Driver and Annette Bening grill the CIA like pros in the first trailer for The Report. The fact-based drama tackles post-9/11 torture tactics under the eye of director Scott Z. Burns and producer Steven Soderbergh. Watch the trailer below.
The Report follows Daniel J. Jones — a staff member of the US Select Committee on Intelligence, played by Driver — who aids his boss, Senator Dianne Feinstein (Bening), in a major investigation of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program following 9/11. The film digs into destroyed evidence, ignored laws, and the vast collection of secrets the CIA withheld from the public after the terrorist attacks. . It will serve as Burns’ directorial debut.
It’s easy to see why critics at Sundance were enraptured with the film, and why many believe it will be nominated for several Academy Awards. For now, it’s time to wait, as The Report will enter a limited theatrical release via Amazon on November 15th.
