The Good Night, and Good Luck Companion Piece is fifteen minutes' long and is basically a Behind the Scenes Documentary. With the main cast and crew (including Clooney himself) talking about how they put the production together and how they consulted the real-life individuals in order to ensure authenticity. We even get interview clips with these men and their wives, discussing their important work. This is a revealing and informative Featurette that has plenty of extra information to offer (including brief comparisons between Clooney's own fight to tell controversial tales and Murrow's work - although I think they are only very loosely similar).
Finally we get the movie's Theatrical Trailer to round off the disc.
Good Night, and Good Luck is a clever, politically charged drama about an important time in American history that not everyone is au fait with (even in America itself). With its topical implications and standout performances, it marks another superb effort from Clooney both in front of and behind the camera. The video and audio suffer slightly because of the original news footage that was used, but are still generally good and the interesting extras offer even further insight into not only the movie but also the era itself. Well worth your time if you can handle something less viscerally and more mentally entertaining.
