Four decades of secrets. One determined newspaper.
DIRECTED BY: Steven Spielberg
WRITTEN BY: Liz Hannah and Josh Singer
STARRING: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Bob Odenkirk
SYNOPSIS: A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between the press and the government. (IMDB)
FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
The Post is a slow political thriller that brings together the talent of Spielberg, Streep and Hanks for the first time. What is expected to be an award magnet becomes a character-driven, dragging story about a very relevant topic that sheds light on some important issues with society today.
★★★★★★★½☆☆ 7.5/10 – Consider
