In “The Report” — a thriller based on actual events — idealistic staffer Daniel J. Jones (Adam Driver) is tasked by his boss, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening), with leading an investigation of the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program, which was created in the aftermath of 9/11. Jones’ relentless pursuit of the truth leads to findings that uncover the lengths to which the nation’s top intelligence agency went to destroy evidence, subvert the law, and hide a shocking secret from the American public. Written and directed by Scott Z. Burns — frequent screenwriter for Steven Soderbergh (“Contagion,” “Side Effects,” the new “The Laundromat”) — “The Report” features a vast and impressive cast that also includes Jon Hamm, Michael C. Hall, Ted Levine, Tim Blake Nelson, Matthew Rhys, Corey Stoll, and Maura Tierney. The Guardian writes: “It’s such a rare thrill to see a smart, adult drama like ‘The Report’ that I left its Sundance premiere on an adrenaline high as if I had just seen the latest ‘Mission: Impossible’ movie, giddy from the ride I had just taken.”
