After watching Spotlight on our last episode, we decided to take a look at another “Newspaper Journalist Thriller” so we watched All the President’s Men! The film stars Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman as the reporters who broke the Watergate story. If you aren’t familiar with Watergate, it is the scandal that ensured every succeeding scandal ended in the word “gate.” This film is a true classic about two guys digging until they finally found the truth. Definitely worth the watch!
Our next film will be Grizzly Man!
