Orson Welles (Tom Burke), given complete creative freedom for his next picture, recruits prolific writer and boozehound Herman J. Mankiewicz (Gary Oldman) to write the script of what will eventually become Citizen Kane. Through a flashback-laden narrative set in the 30s and 40s, director David Fincher opens a window into the making of the film often labeled the best ever made while also examining how the media and the movies collaborated to sink the nascent socialist movement of the time. Fincher, working from a script written by his late father Jack, spins a gorgeous, black-and-white extravaganza perfectly suited for the big screen experience.

Mank is nominated for 10 Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Score, Best Sound, Best Production Design, Best Cinematography, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, and Best Costume Design.
