Based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb, Kill the Messenger takes place in the mid 1990s, when Webb uncovered the CIA’s past role in importing huge amounts of cocaine into the U.S. Despite enormous pressure not to, Webb chose to pursue the story and went public with his evidence, publishing the series Dark Alliance. As a result, Webb experienced a vicious smear campaign fueled by the CIA that drove him to the point of suicide. Kill the Messenger hits theaters on October 10.
