Broadcast News (1987)

 Rated R because we simply must swear while discussing journalism (FAKE NEWS!)

Tune into the 87th Next 100 Project podcast where we gab about the fil-lm with humour & romance (not to mention job obsession) in the field of television journalism. William Hurt & Albert Brooks love-triangle it up with Holly Hunter and the 3 of them have plenty of chemistry, but Jim Brooks’ 3rd act is far from perfect. Funny stuff though!

FOR THE RECORD: Robert Prosky was 57 when the movie was released, not “in his 60s”.
