Before the Watergate scandal made headlines, the incendiary Pentagon Papers – revealing the US government was aware the Vietnam War was a lost cause – were leaked to the press in 1971.

The Nixon administration won an injunction to prevent further publication of the damning evidence, but having obtained the top secret document, Washington Post owner Kay Graham (Meryl Streep) and her executive editor (Tom Hanks) are determined to uphold the First Amendment. Effortlessly directed by Steven Spielberg with a focus on character and procedural detail, The Post is a gripping newsroom drama in the tradition of All the President’s Men, Zodiac and Spotlight. This suspenseful race against a looming deadline comes with the added novelty of seeing Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks together for the very first time onscreen.
