Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), 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 U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.


The Post is a movie of galvanizing relevance which pulses ahead like a detective yarn for news junkies, one that crackles with present-day parallels.

Steven Spielberg’s journalistic drama could not be more timely, a rabble-rousing thriller filled with fierce commitment and fervent heart.
