All The Presidents Men – Filtered
In the run-up to the 1972 elections, Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward covers what seems to be a minor break-in at the Democratic Party National headquarters. He is surprised to find top lawyers already on the defense case, and the discovery of names and addresses of Republican fund organizers further arouses his suspicions. The editor of the Post is prepared to run with the story and assigns Woodward and Carl Bernstein to it. They find the trail leading higher and higher in the Republican Party, and eventually to the White House itself.
Persistent Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein try and find out the whole story behind Watergate. With doors slammed in their face, hang-ups, and “no comments,” their job is very stressful. This movie is extremely slow and seemed to repeat itself on some plot points. It is a clean filtered movie. The only content area of concern in the movie is that one of the reporters smoked in just about every scene. We recommend it for ages twelve and above and it is a dramatic statement on a period of our history which will not be forgotten.
