Mark Felt - The Man Who Brought Down the White House centers on the true story of “Deep Throat”, the notorious whistleblower for one of the greatest scandals of all time, Watergate. The true identity of the secret informant remained a mystery and source of much speculation for over 30 years. Until, in 2005, special agent Mark Felt shockingly revealed himself as the tipster. This powerful true story chronicles the life of the brilliant and uncompromising Felt, who sacrificed everything – his family, his career, his freedom – in the name of justice.

Fascinating story undercut by wordy, bland filmmaking.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House is a drama about real-life former associate director of the FBI Mark Felt, who, after missing out on promotions and coming under pressure from an unfriendly new director, decides to leak information about the Watergate break-in to the press. Expect strong language, including a couple uses of "f--k" (said during an anti-war chant), plus "bulls--t" and other words. A married couple is affectionate; they dance, snuggle, and kiss. Characters smoke cigarettes frequently; there's also some social drinking. Violence isn't an issue, but there are discussions about the death of the former FBI director. It's a fascinating story, but it's unfortunately undone by lackluster filmmaking that focuses more on explaining than storytelling.
