Good Night, and Good Luck is a powerful and gripping political drama that portrays the 1950's era with the perfect atmosphere of the fear of Communism lived through that times.
The power of dialogue is immense and no matter the slow paced of the film, you never get bored!
David Strathairn steals the show and gives an absolutely great performance as Edward R. Murrow the CBS news reporter , which gave him a well deserved Oscar nomination. The rest of the members of cast, as the group of journalist who worked with Murrow gave authentic performances, George Clooney, Robert Downey Jr, Patricia Clarkson, Frank Langella among others were all fantastic. What is also amazing about this film is how any of this characters does not overshadows the other.
George Clooney was able to do a film that can entertain you but also give you a very interesting part of the political American history.
Beautifully shooted in black and white and with a great Jazz soundtrack.
In my opinion a flawless film, I loved it!
