“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world would do this, it would change the earth.”
― William Faulkner

Writer/director Scott Z. Burns' (who wrote screenplays for Steven Soderbergh, who is one of the producers of THE REPORT) work is dealing with a dark chapter in US history. It's an important, yet a little bit dry investigation film, carried by another charismatic performance by Adam Driver, and a very solid support cast (Annette Bening, Jon Hamm, Ted Levine, Corey Stoll and Michael C. Hall).
