USA | 117 min | PG-13 | DCP | Dir. Steven Spielberg
OSCAR ® winners Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks team up for the first time in this thrilling film based on a true story. Determined to uphold the nation’s civil liberties, Katharine Graham (Streep), publisher of The Washinton Post, and hard-nosed editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks) join forces to expose a decades-long cover-up. But the two must risk their careers –– and their freedom –– to bring truth to light in this powerful film with a celebrated cast.
"There's topical, there's timely, and then there's The Post, which feels less like a historical thriller set in 1971 than it does an exhilarating caricature of the year 2017." - David Ehrlich (Indiewire)
