Good Night, and Good Luck - Movie Synopsis & Plot

"Good Night. And, Good Luck." takes place during the early days of broadcast journalism in 1950's America. It chronicles the real-life conflict between television newsman Edward R. Murrow and Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee. With a desire to report the facts and enlighten the public, Murrow, and his dedicated staff - headed by his producer Fred Friendly and Joe Wershba in the CBS newsroom - defy corporate and sponsorship pressures to examine the lies and scaremongering tactics perpetrated by McCarthy during his communist 'witch-hunts'. A very public feud develops when the Senator responds by accusing the anchor of being a communist. In this climate of fear and reprisal, the CBS crew carries on and their tenacity will prove historic and monumental.

MOVIE REVIEW

Slowly broadening into more theaters, "Good Night, and Good Luck," the black-and-white film from George Clooney, is a riveting tale of journalistic heroism and a to-the-point commentary on the media situation today.
