"The Press was to serve the governed, not the governors." - Supreme court justice Hugo Black in 1971.
I'm not going to lie, I know little to nothing about American history including the details surrounding the Pentagon Papers and the US Government's involvement in the cover up of the Vietnam war. Despite this, The Post was able to keep me captivated and portrays an important message that is very poignant in Trump's America. Plus it's directed by the legend that is Steven Speilberg.
The film follows The Washington Post owner Katharine "Kay" Graham (Meryl Streep) as she runs the Post and prepares the company to go public on the stock exchange. The timing isn't ideal as her editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) gets a lead on a big story about the Pentagon Papers and the Government's involvement in the Vietnam War. At this time, The New York Times have already posted classified documents and have an injunction against them. Now Katharine must find her voice as she struggles to decide whether she should stand up for what is right and post the classified documents and risk her company and life she has always known.

I personally loved this film. Going in with no real knowledge of the history surrounding the war and the Pentagon Papers, this film has given me a Yearning to learn more. It's beautifully shot and has some outstanding performances from both Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, which makes for great viewing.
The Post is a movie that definitely gets you thinking too, although set within the 70's the film carries with it some moral messages that still rein true today.
The Post is not only a clever and informative film, but it also raises questions about society today and gets you thinking. Go check it out. My film rating 7/10 . #film#filmreview#filmgradreview#movie#cinema#thepost#merylstreep#tomhanks#stevenspeilberg#pentagonpapers#thewashingtonpost#freepress#womenpower
I great journalism and storytelling. The Post is a love letter to the First Amendment, the importance and complexity of messy truths coming to light, and the impact of brave women who make their voices heard.
Loved seeing this movie with fellow @drakejmc alum @doppold! Couldn’t help but recall learning about the Pentagon Papers from Prof. Woodward in J-History. #thepost#firstamendment#freedomofthepress#freepress#pentagonpapers#checksandbalances
