One word: fantastic. When a research assistant to a high-flying Congressman is killed, two journalists are assigned by their Editor to report on what's going on. Enter mystery, intrigue, corruption and lies. Oh and a good bit of swearing from Mirren. Set in Washington DC, the race is on to uncover the truth before someone else gets killed by a crazed hitman.
Sets and locations are incredible, I played spot-the-location a few times, coming up with the Kennedy Center and of course the Capitol Hill area. Behind Mirren's desk are personal photos of her with her family, most of these are taken from her best-selling book 'In The Frame.'
The Washington Globe is the Washington Post, Della and Cal are Woodward & Bernstein and Cameron Lynne is Katharine Graham.
A 5* film!
