The Post - Movie Trailer

Next up for Spielberg is The Post, a film that couldn’t be any more timely as it takes on the current hot button topic of the precarious relationship between the government and a free press.

Only, the film is set in 1971 when, following the New York Times release of the leaked Pentagon Papers, the Nixon White House secured a court order that barred the newspaper from publishing the papers which documented the United States’ involvement in Vietnam.

Spielberg’s film picks up after the sequestration of The Times, when The Washington Post came to the aid of a fellow publication and grappled with whether to run the papers itself. The Washington Post, at the time, was headed by Katherine Graham (Meryl Strep), who along with editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) were faced with a make or break decision that had the potential to rattle the entire world.
