In the run-up to the 1972 elections, Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward covers what seems to be a minor break-in at the Democratic Party National headquarters. He is surprised to find top lawyers already on the defence case, and the discovery of names and addresses of Republican fund organisers on the accused further arouses his suspicions. The editor of the Post is prepared to run with the story and assigns Woodward and Carl Bernstein to it. They find the trail leading higher and higher in the Republican Party, and eventually into the White House itself. Enactment of the work of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein who uncovered the dirty tricks campaign and the coverup of the White House's involvement in the Watergate break in. The stories they wrote were very instrumental in the eventual resignation of President Richard Nixon.


Sometimes Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction. The Watergate Scandal which was uncovered by Washington Post journalists Woodward and Bernstein (Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman) is the topic of this outstanding picture from the very dominant cinematic year that was 1976. The two will stop at nothing to get to the truth and the strangest thing of all is that this is all based on a true story. An Oscar-winning performance by Jason Robards and top-notch jobs by Jane Alexander (in a strange Oscar-nominated role as she has only about 10 minutes of screen-time), Martin Balsam, Jack Warden, Ned Beatty and the mysterious Hal Holbrook just add to the film's brilliance. A strong film that, along with "Network", captured the most Academy Awards (4) in 1976. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
