Steven Spielberg's movie "the Post," could've have been a prequel to the 1976 movie "All the President's Men." The film tells of how a military Analyist name Daniel Ellsberg who wrote a critic of the America's involvement of the Vietnam War which goes way back to 1941. the movie takes place in 1971 where the vietnam War is ragiong with no end in sight. Meryl Streep plays the owner Katherine Graham who who's worried about the paper's future and Tim hanks as the editor in chief Ben Bradley going on the day to day activities at the paper until the Pentagon papers fall into their ;laps. the New York Times starts to run the papers, but a court ruling halted the paper, and it was the Washington Post who agree to run the papers, even if it means Prison term if found guilty. The cast is superb. Tom Hanks gave good performance and Meryl Streep gave one her best roles in years. "The Post" is a history of how a powerful paper like the Washington Post could stand up to a government over the freedom of speech. that movie is very important to the Freedom of Speech, even what we're going though today.

Good movie, great story, well played. I love Tom Hanks and all the rolls he has played, but i felt something missing in this roll and I didn't enjoy his acting as I have in the past.

If there was ever a movie made for these times, The Post is probably it. Layered along with the issue of whether a newspaper has the ability to report newsworthy items, even if it is not in the government's best interest, is the journey that Meryl Streep's Kay Graham takes as she struggles to find her footing as the owner of her family's newspaper while taking it public in order to become a more significant publication.

I think it is in that layering where the beauty of the movie comes. The intrigue about whether stories about The Pentagon Papers can be published overshadows everything else, but there's a reason that Streep got nominated for an Academy Award.

When the credits rolled, I felt inspired to go out and get a subscription to the Washington Post, as well as the New York Times. Like other investigative reporting movies that have come out before it (Spotlight, for example), the movie shines a light on the importance of proper investigative journalism and its place in the workings of our country.

For its relevance in the time that it was released, as well as the effective story of Kay Graham's journey (as well as Streep's portrayal), I'm bumping this Good movie to a See Now! and recommend checking it out!

A film that combines three of the most talented people in the film making industry (Streep, Hanks, and Spielberg) to create a movie that's well-written with good performances, but the political message is too blatant for me to connect with the characters enough.
