About

Senate staffer Daniel Jones is assigned the daunting task of leading an investigation into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program. After analyzing extensive evidence, he learns about the “enhanced interrogation techniques”—proven to be brutal, immoral, and ineffective—that the CIA adopted after 9/11. When Jones and the Senate Intelligence Committee attempt to release the results from his investigation, however, the CIA and White House go to great lengths to prevent the truth from getting out.

Highly acclaimed producer and screenwriter Scott Z. Burns returns to the director's chair to helm this absorbing political thriller. Weaving together more than a decade’s worth of real-life political intrigue, Burns’s script offers a clear-eyed account of Jones’s tireless fight to research and publish his damning 525-page public report. The Report also features a dream cast, including Adam Driver (as the driven Daniel Jones) and the always-great Annette Bening (as Senator Dianne Feinstein), that memorably brings this riveting story to life.
