It was the mother of all political scandals, the one that gave us “deep throat” and the “-gate” suffix, which has adorned every shocking incident, big or small, ever since. The story of Watergate – exposed by two Washington Post journalists, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein and prompting Nixon’s impeachment – is thrillingly told in this classic film. Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford shine in what is a true testament to the power of investigative journalism and cinema.
