The Watergate Scandal is quite possibly the archetypal political scandal (well, once you get past all the sex scandals that have arisen in more recent years that is.)
It’s a perfect story for a thriller; there’s corruption, mystery and plenty of secret meetings in underground car parks, which is probably why it’s been covered in so many different ways, from All the President’s Men to Nixon, and now with Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House.
Starring Liam Neeson as the titular Felt, a senior agent of the FBI who is requested to stop looking into what happened at The Watergate Hotel in 1972 after he begins to unravel a tangled web of deceit that would eventually bring down the President himself.
Whilst everyone knows the outcome of the story, the incredible combination of Neeson, Diane Lane, Michael C. Hall and Bruce Greenwood (alongside many more) makes this a delectable little morsel to feast upon when it gets released.
Mark Felt: The Guy Who Brought Down the White House is out in cinemas later this year!
