In early 20th-century New York, penniless Jewish Hungarian immigrant Joseph Pulitzer founded the The World, which went on to become an influential newspaper that raised the ire of sitting President Teddy Roosevelt, and emerged as a crucial defender of the freedom of the press. With narration by Adam Driver and featuring Liev Schreiber, Tim Blake Nelson, and Rachel Brosnahan in key vocal roles, this eye-opening documentary tells the story of the man behind the prize, and offers pertinent lessons for our current political moment.
