Synopsis

Based on true events, The Post documents a time when The Washington Post publisher Kay Graham (Meryl Streep) and her driven editor, Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) worked to expose the government's true reason for involving itself in the Vietnam War, which was explained via the controversial Pentagon Papers.

Kay and Ben's work highlights that journalists are often at odds with some of the highest officials in government, especially when it's learned that four U.S. presidential administrations (Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson) mislead the American public over why the U.S. was really in Vietnam.

  • 2 stars "2.4 STARS. Boring. Dull. Saw this 2 weeks ago, completely forgot that I did, that is how flat it was. Don't bother seeing this, you won't care about any of the characters, but even if you do, you won't remember why."
