In this landmark film by acclaimed director Oren Rudavsky, Adam Driver is the narrator while Liev Schreiber, Tim Blake Nelson and Rachel Brosnahan voice key roles; together, they bring to life the virtually unknown American icon. Joseph Pulitzer began as a penniless Jewish immigrant from Hungary and grew into one of America’s most admired and feared media figures.This documentary tells the rare story of the man behind the prize, who spoke of “fake news” and the importance of freedom of the press over a century ago. His New York newspaper The World spoke to an unprecedented number of readers with powerful journalistic ideals and an artistry and game-changing originality. Pulitzer eventually came to challenge a popular president, fighting for the freedom of the press as essential to our American democracy. A First Run Features release
