All the President’s Men

Hoffman and Redford as Bernstein and Woodward

     All the President’s Men is a 1976 film starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford based on the true story of the exposition of the Nixon administration’s involvement in the Watergate break-in.
     The film is a fairly accurate portrayal of events, helped by the assistance of Bernstein and Woodward in writing and production. The sets, clothing, and methods portrayed all coincide with the book of the same title. Though some elements may seem unrealistic, such as the active threat from the CIA,  the reporters themselves, trained in accuracy and detail, supported the factuality.
     The film shows both the best and worst aspects of American society. The Nixon administration’s corruption and manipulation is an example of one of the darkest points in the American government. In contrast, the ability of the journalists to research and expose the conspiracy showcases the benifits of the constitution and American law.
