Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post's Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), 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. The Post marks the first time Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg have collaborated on a project. In addition to directing, Spielberg produces along with Amy Pascal and Kristie Macosko Krieger. The script was written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer, and the film features an acclaimed ensemble cast including Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford and Zach Woods.
"The people deserve the truth and not to be lied to, but "The Post" shows that is easier said than done, and it's harder than just writing a story and sending it to the presses."
- Adam Graham, DETROIT NEWS
"In an era in which journalistic outlets are increasingly accused of delivering "fake news," this film is a reminder that few things are as precious - and vital - as the truth."
- Calvin Wilson, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
"The Post" tells of a great moment in journalism - and a great moment in one remarkable woman's life."
- Moira MacDonald, SEATTLE TIMES
"The standout is Bob Odenkirk as Ben Bagdikian, the kind of old-school reporter who wears out the soles of his shoes tracking down a scoop."
- Richard Roeper, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
