The Post (12A)

USA/2017/116mins/12a Dir: Steven Spielberg With: Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Alison Brie, Matthew Rhys

A thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post's Katharine Graham, the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and legendary 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 U.S. Presidents, commonly known as the Pentagon Papers. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers and their very freedom to help bring long-buried truths to light. A timely drama about the importance of the media to speak truth to power and a masterclass in filmmaking from Speilberg and his impressive cast.

"Nothing is more promisingly solid, to the moviegoer, than a major Spielberg production. You can foretell everything from the calibration of the craftsmanship to the heft of the cast, and “The Post” inarguably delivers…despite this authentic re- creation of the past, “The Post” is not a period movie. Instead, it is squarely addressed to the present day, striving for the urgency of a headline. The film is here to warn us of fresh threats to press freedom; to confirm that the battle between real news and fake news is not without precedent. "
