The Eclectic Cinema is showing Good Night, and Good Luck. on Monday 17th April 2023 at 6.00pm.

Good Night, and Good Luck. (USA 2005 93min PG) is directed by George Clooney starring David Strathairn, George Clooney and Patricia Clarkson.

A film about the demise of Senator Joseph McCarthy, who in post-war USA conducted a campaign to root out communists from influential positions. By 1953, it seemed like a witch-hunt. Edward R. Murrow was a CBS television broadcaster who ran a number of critical pieces on his weekly news show. He was an important player in events leading to the Senate investigation of McCarthy that spelt the end of his reign.

The film cleverly blends the actors with archive footage of McCarthy himself. It was nominated for six Academy Awards and has won much critical acclaim. Watch the trailer here.
