The Post (12a)

Director Steven Spielberg. Biography/Drama/History

THE POST is a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post's Katharine Graham, the first female publisher of a major American newspaper and 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. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers - and their very freedom - to help bring long-buried truths to light.

Starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

This film starts slowly but builds nicely and has a very strong cast that give really believable performances. Interesting link to the Watergate scandal with great background and exploration of the history of press freedom in America.

Slow to get going but second half very good.

Well crafted with good performances from all the principles who were obviously playing real people in recent history and reminding us of the shocking things governments do if they are allowed.
