Hailed as one of the best films ever made, Orson Welles’s Citizen Kane depicts the investigation of journalist Jerry Thompson on the past of publishing tycoon, the “larger than life” and recently deceased Charles Foster Kane. Meeting all those who knew him and digging deeper and deeper into his secrets via flashbacks, Thompson reveals Kane’s hidden past, his rise to fame, and how he eventually fell off the top of the world.
