For his directorial debut, frequent Soderbergh collaborator Scott Z Burns tackles the true story of US Senate staffer Daniel Jones (Adam Driver) and his investigation into the CIA’s use of torture following the September 11 attacks. What did the government do to detainees in the aftermath, and what have they done since to cover up the evidence? These questions lie at the heart of Jones’s inquest, as his efforts and tenacity are tested by the CIA’s determination to keep the truth in the dark. Burns constructs a detailed political thriller that plunges the audience into a world of high-ranking intrigue and subterfuge. ‘Razor-sharp dialogue and a perfect cast’ –
