Product Description

ACADEMY AWARD® NOMINEE-- BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE<BR><BR>{Audience Award -- Best Documentary - 2010 Palm Springs Film Festival} <BR>{Audience Award -- Best Documentary - 2009 Mill Valley Film Festival} <BR>{2009 Toronto International Film Festival} <BR>{2009 Vancouver International Film Festival} <BR>{2009 IDFA Film Festival "In Competition"} <BR><BR>In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, concludes that the war is based on decades of lies and leaks 7,000 pages of top secret documents to The New York Times, making headlines around the world. Hailed as a hero, vilified as a traitor, and ostracized by even his closest colleagues, Ellsberg risks life in prison to stop a war he helped plan. <BR><BR>This is the riveting story of one man's profound crisis of conscience that shook a nation, its courts, its free press and its presidency to the core. It is also an acutely timely and piercing look at the world of government secrecy in wartime as revealed by the ultimate insider. Marked by a landmark Supreme Court battle between America's greatest newspapers and its president, this political thriller unravels a saga that leads directly to Watergate, Nixon's resignation and the end of the Vietnam War.

Review

CRITIC'S PICK! Riveting! A straight-ahead, enthralling story of moral courage. --David Edelstein, New York Magazine

Gripping! Almost seismic drama... A classic whistleblower tale. --Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

Gripping, evocative... comprehensively detailed... chilling -- and perversely entertaining. --Gary Goldstein, The Los Angeles Times
