Log in to post a review.
Shot in black and white, Good Night, And Good Luck. takes place in the 1950s during the time of Senator Joseph McCarthy's Communist hunt. David Strathairn plays journalist Edward R. Murrow, who attacks McCarthy's interrogating methods, and in return McCarthy claims that Murrow was/is a Communist sympathizer. Director George Clooney nicely mixes in real footage of McCarthy, and a good cast surrounds Strathairn's character. Overall, it is a solid movie.
