Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep team up with legendary director Steven Spielberg in this thrilling political drama recounting the Washington Post’s role in exposing the Pentagon Papers in 1971. Hanks and Street star as Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and the publication’s first female publisher Katharine Graham, who teamed up with New York Times to expose one of the biggest political cover ups in America. Blocked by the White House, Bradlee and Graham challenged the federal government in the Supreme Court for the right to publish the Pentagon Papers, a classified study which revealed the harrowing futility of the Vietnam War and exposed the fact the Nixon Administration had been lying to the public. A smart, incisive film with an urgent relevance to today’s America, THE POST explores the idea of freedom of press and champions the outlets who honoured their responsibility to a public deceived by its own government.
