‘‘The Post’ chronicles the efforts of the Washington Post’s publisher and editor to get the Pentagon Papers – classified documents about a US government cover-up of its actions in Vietnam – published.
The cover-up had spanned the tenures of four Presidents, and it spurred Kay Graham, America’s first female newspaper publisher, and Ben Bradlee, the paper’s editor, to join an unprecedented battle between journalists and the government.
Steven Spielberg marshals an all-star cast including Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep for ‘The Post’, an incredible true story about fighting for the truth at all costs.
Golden Globes: 4 Nominations - inc. 'Best Film (Drama)', 'Best Director', 'Best Actress (Drama)', 'Best Actor (Drama)'
