Story


Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner stars as Gary Webb, the real-life dedicated reporter for The San Jose Mercury-News. In the 1990s, Webb uncovered the Central Intelligence Agency's role in importing cocaine into California that was sold to raise money for the Nicaraguan Contras rebel army. Supported by his wife and children, Webb pursued the story and went public with his evidence. When targeted for a vicious smear campaign by the CIA and rival journalists, Webb found himself fighting for his reputation and his family.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Renner shines in this compelling but slightly one-sided journalism thriller..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..the flaw in "Kill the Messenger" is that it's never definitive on how good a job Webb did of that..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..Kill the Messenger is compelling material but the recognition that the core of the narrative is based on true events gives it additional power..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
