Story: Bio-drama spy thriller written and directed by Peter Landesman based on true events about FBI agent, Mark Felt (Liam Neeson), who became an anonymous source known as “Deep Throat”, the notorious whistleblower for one of the greatest scandals of all time, Watergate. The true identity of the secret informant remained a mystery and source of much public curiosity and speculation for more than 30 years.
That is until, in 2005, special agent Mark Felt shockingly revealed himself as the tipster. The film chronicles the personal and professional life of the uncompromising Felt, who risked and ultimately sacrificed everything, his family, his career, his freedom, in the name of justice.
