D.C. in the Movies Webinars
All the President's Men (1976)
Reporters Bob Woodward’s and Carl Bernstein’s investigation of a burglary at the Watergate office building uncovers nefarious activity within the Richard Nixon administration. “Follow the money,” advises their anonymous source Deep Throat. Still considered the gold standard for depicting investigative journalism in film. And the use of Washington, D.C. settings to help tell the story is matchless. With Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Robards, and Jane Alexander.
