About this item
Academy Award winning director Steven Spielberg helms a powerhouse cast including Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in THE POST, inspired by the true story of the publication of the Pentagon Papers, a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned four U.S. Presidents, and the ensuing civil liberties battle over our nation’s most important rights. Katherine Graham (Streep), the brand-new, inexperienced head of the Washington Post, is the country’s first female newspapers publisher, and Ben Bradlee (Hanks) is the paper’s imposing and hard-driving editor. The two must unite as they make the bold decision on whether to publish the Pentagon Papers.

Definitely hope they do the sequel and do a movie about the watergate scandal. Altogether I found this movie intriguing since it exposed how the government was trying to silence the papers.
