The story will focus on Martha Mitchell played by Julia Roberts. A great personality with an even bigger mouth. Martha is a celebrity from the Arkansan Society and the wife of Nixon’s loyal attorney general, John Mitchell, played by Sean Penn. Despite her party affiliation, she was the first person to publicly sound the alarm over Nixon’s involvement in Watergate, which led to the unfolding of both the Presidency and her personal life.
