The Post (2017)
The Post is a 2017 American historical political thriller film directed and produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer. Inspired by real events, The Post follows the investigation by the Washington Post into the Pentagon Papers - a cache of reports and memos concerning America's disastrous involvement in Vietnam - and the impact it had on the paper itself, led by Kay Graham (Meryl Streep), the first female newspaper publisher in American history, and veteran editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks).
Events unfold while a demagogic president fumes crazily in an unhappy White House. The freedom of the press is questioned. The position of women in power structures is investigated. “The press is there to serve the governed, not the governors,” somebody says.
