What are you going to do, Mrs Graham?
Katharine Graham is the first female publisher of a major American newspaper — The Washington Post. With help from editor Ben Bradlee, Graham races to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spans 3 decades and 4 US presidents. Together, they must overcome their differences as they risk their careers — and very freedom — to help bring long-buried truths to light.
Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.
“[Makes] journalism look like the most awesome job ever – akin to what Raiders of the Lost Ark did for archaeology.” – USA Today.
“The beauty of Streep’s performance (and it’s one of her best in years) . . . elevates The Post from being a First Amendment story to a feminist one, too.” – Entertainment Weekly.
“Everything from the calibration of the craftsmanship to the heft of the cast . . . The Post inarguably delivers.” – The New Yorker.
“Crackles with present-day parallels.” – Variety.
