In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the CIA adopted ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ on detainees suspected of terrorist activities. Their methods included sleep deprivation and waterboarding, activities that amounted to torture. With forensic journalistic integrity, acclaimed producer and screenwriter Scott Z Burns directs this stirring political thriller depicting an epic investigation into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program. At its centre is a captivating performance from Adam Driver as Senate staffer Daniel Jones, a man compelled to shine light on dark, disturbing facts despite being confronted by powerful political forces who would rather suppress the truth.
