Truly, everything I find “sexy” (I put the word in quotes because it’s one of my least favorite words, but it’s apt for the post) can basically be traced back to this movie.
Journalists
Rumpled dress shirts with rolled-up sleeves
Loose ties
Sitting on desks and tables
Smart men working tirelessly to expose government scandals and corruption (like Julian Assange without the rape, which is kind of a dealbreaker!)
If only the real Woodward and Bernstein looked exactly like Redford and Hoffman. Because, I mean, come on. This is Robert f’ing Redford we’re talking about. He kind of looks like an old lesbian these days, but in his prime? Yeah. You can keep your Johnny Depps and your Robert Downey Jrs. Take ‘em.
