Political conspiracy, White House scandal – Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman are crusading journalists in a gripping dramatic-thriller that could be ripped from today’s headlines.

Certificate 15
Duration 138 mins

Political conspiracy, dirty tricks, White House scandal, the power of the press – a film that could easily be ripped from today’s headlines is actually one of the great American movies of the 1970s. Stars Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman are perfectly paired as crusading journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the Washington Post reporters whose investigation into the Watergate break-in led to the downfall of President Richard Nixon.

Director Alan J. Pakula was a master of paranoia and suspense in the ‘70s thanks to films such as The Parallax View and Klute, and this critical and commercial hit shows you why – it’s a detailed drama full of information and adult complexity but with all the pace and excitement of a thriller. The increasingly nostalgic exhilaration of working in a buzzing newsroom is expertly captured as our leads ‘follow the money’ and set up clandestine meetings with the shadowy character known as ‘Deep Throat’. Written by the legendary William Goldman (Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid), this compelling classic will have you hooked right from the front page - even while we await the next real-life instalment.

As smart and cautionary now as it was in the 70s.
