The story of Daniel Jones, lead investigator for the US Senate's sweeping study into the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program, which was found to be brutal, immoral and ineffective. With the truth at stake, Jones battled tirelessly to make public what many in power sought to keep hidden.

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.

★★★★ 'Adam Driver and Annette Bening give excellent performances in an utterly absorbing film indicting post-9/11 interrogation practices.' -  Guardian

'Adam Driver stars in a darkly gripping political drama, about the CIA's use of torture after 9/11, that's authentic enough to give you that '70s feeling.' Variety

'The fury of Adam Driver scorches America’s legacy in The Report.' - Polygon

'A Riveting Investigative Drama on the CIA’s Torture Program'  The Collider
