James L. Brooks is known for his explorations of work and love and his insights into the
cultural zeitgeist. None of his films are more quintessentially Brooks than Broadcast News. This
caustic look inside the Washington news-media stars Holly Hunter, in her breakout role, as a
television producer torn between an ambitious yet dim anchorman (William Hurt) and her
closest confidant, a cynical veteran reporter (Albert Brooks). Brooks’s witty, gently prophetic
film is a captivating transmission from an era in which ideas on relationships and the media
were rapidly changing. (1987, 132 mins)
