Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House

"Liam Neeson is quietly devastating in this biopic of Watergate's Deep Throat that is eerily relevant if you wonder if there'll be a modern-day Felt to bring down the White House." - Rolling Stone

“We historicize Watergate as an era-defining triumph of investigative journalism over political corruption, but those who lived through it know the exposé and its astonishing outcome were the result of years of dogged work — work that could never have been done without the anonymous whistleblower known only as Deep Throat. This riveting historical thriller, starring Liam Neeson and directed by Peter Landesman tells the story of a man whose courage and integrity led to the most infamous scandal in US politics.

“It is 1972. After nearly 40 years in office, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover has died. Despite obvious qualifications and decades of dedication, Special Agent Mark Felt (Neeson) is not appointed as Hoover’s successor. The snub is indicative of forces outside the Bureau conspiring against its independence. Felt is named Associate Director, yet Nixon’s White House keeps Felt and his colleagues on an ever-tightening leash — especially with regards to a mysterious break-in at the Democratic National Committee’s Watergate headquarters. Seeing no other recourse, Felt begins leaking information to Washington Post writer Bob Woodward, placing himself in danger and changing the course of history.” - TIFF
