Believe it or not, this is the first time when Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks are coming together on screen and that too under the direction of Spielberg, nothing short of a perfect recipe for an Oscar-worthy movie. In fact, many are applauding the timing of the release of The Post, as the subject matter of the movie echoes the relationship between the Trump administration in the US and their media.
The Post is 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. Both Graham and Bradlee must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.
