Good Night and Good Luck chronicles that real-life conflict between esteemed television newsman Edward R. Murrow (Strathairn) and Senator Joseph McCarthy. In the early 1950's, the threat of Communism created an air of intense paranoia in the United States, many lives were lost and careers ruined.  Exploiting those fears was Senator McCarthy. However, CBS reporter Murrow and his producer Fred Friendly decided to take a stand and challenge McCarthy and expose him for the fear-monger he was. Regardless of the great personal toll on both men, they stood by their convictions and helped to bring down one of the most controversial senators in American history. Nominated for 6 Academy Awards. Starring David Straithairn (McMafia), Jeff Daniels and George Clooney, who also wrote and directed the film.
