If you watch the news or read newspapers in the United States of America, you may have noticed that we are at a strange time for politics and the news. However, this isn’t the first time. The upcoming film, The Post, starting Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, focuses on another such time in history.
Here is the official synopsis:
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 comes to theaters December 22, 2017.
