If we can’t make more plain current events, then we can at least try to use the gift of hindsight to tell important stories about then and, by effect, now. This is what The Report, an upcoming political drama from writer/director Scott Z. Burns (screenwriter for films like The Bourne Ulimatum and the upcoming Bond flick No Time to Die) with some Oscar buzz, seems poised to do, telling the story of the 2014 Senate Torture Report.
The film follows staffer Daniel Jones (played by Adam Driver) and the Senate Intelligence Committee as they investigate accusations of torture by the CIA following the events of September 11th.
The Report Trailer

Here’s the full synopsis from Amazon Prime:
The Report is a riveting thriller based on actual events. Idealistic staffer Daniel J. Jones (Adam Driver) is tasked by his boss Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening) to lead an investigation of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program, which was created in the aftermath of 9/11. Jones’ relentless pursuit of the truth leads to explosive findings that uncover the lengths to which the nation’s top intelligence agency went to destroy evidence, subvert the law, and hide a brutal secret from the American public.
