“A fascinating study in contradictions” — The New York Times

“…something new and wonderful, this film solidly captures an essential moment.” — The Hollywood Reporter

“Brisk and engaging" — Los Angeles Times

This film explores how Joseph Pulitzer, a poor young Jewish immigrant from Hungary, came to challenge a popular president and fight for the freedom of the press as essential to our democracy.

Adam Driver is the narrator and Liev Schreiber is the voice of Pulitzer. Rachel Brosnahan is the voice of journalist Nellie Bly. Together, they bring to life the virtually unknown American genius who revolutionized journalism more than a century ago.

Running time: 85 minutes. See the trailer at
