Chris' Film Club: Good Night & Good Luck
As today is the late Senator Joseph McCarthy’s birthday, Chris Aikman has chosen Good Night and Good Luck as today's film. McCarthy was behind a lot of the communist witch-hunts and the Red Scare in the USA in the 1950s.
The film deals with real-life news anchor and journalist Edward R Murrows’ battles in the media with McCarthy. Shot in black and white, the film stars David Strathairn, George Clooney, Robert Downey Jr, Jeff Daniels and Frank Langella and directed by George Clooney.
