Another politically savvy, richly written Aaron Sorkin hit!
Great Aaron Sorkin script and some great acting. This is for teens or more mature young teens. The conflict in the story is the team at the news room trying to stay true to their values of real reporting, and how that is continually challenged by management and the deteriorating environment in news reporting, including public expectations and consumption of pop news. The story is a morality play on ethics and staying true to what you believe in even when it is hard...when what you believe in is right. Great themes for discussing with your teen. In addition, real news stories are embedded in the storyline, adding to the opportunity to put news events in context with political and social trends and how these events effect the counry, politics and individual views.
