ODEON says...

‘The Post’ chronicles the efforts of the Washington Post’s publisher and editor to get the Pentagon Papers – classified documents about a US government cover-up of its actions in Vietnam – published.

The cover-up had spanned the tenures of four Presidents, and it spurred Kay Graham, America’s first female newspaper publisher, and Ben Bradlee, the paper’s editor, to join an unprecedented battle between journalists and the government.

Steven Spielberg marshals an all-star cast including Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep for ‘The Post’, an incredible true story about fighting for the truth at all costs.

Justice of truth

Reviewer: Godfather Part 2Date: 2018-01-19

A superbly acted, tense movie about the exposing of the US Governments Vietnam cover-up. Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks are the tag team that wrestle with conscience over comfort and it makes you so cross the way politicians can lie to the people.

Well acted

Reviewer: daveh44Date: 2018-01-19

The "story" has been done before and I anticipated nothing new. However, the film grips you. MS gives a brilliant performance as Graham, ably supported by TH. Well worth a look.


Reviewer: Anthony AssadourianDate: 2018-01-19

excellent storyline that was only bettered by Spielberg's direction. Hanks and Streep are at the top of their game
