The Post (Cert 12A) Dir Steven Spielberg UK/USA 2018 116 mins
Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks star in Steven Spielberg’s award-winning drama about a battle for freedom of speech with ramifications that echo throughout history and continue to this day.
The film is based on a true story about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham, the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and its editor Ben Bradlee, as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four US presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.
