Based on a true story, The Post examines the Washington Post’s legal battle to publish the leaked Pentagon Papers in 1971, containing damning classified information about the Vietnam War and a cover-up that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents.
The Post’s Katherine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), risked their careers and their freedom to help bring long-buried truths to light.
Featuring an all-star cast, director Steven Spielberg’s film about journalists challenging government corruption is a timely comment on current events.
