Cert 12A      Running Time 1 hour 56 mins

Director: Steven Spielberg

Starring: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks,

Screenplay: Liz Hannah, Josh Singer

Genres: Biography, Drama, History

This is a true story about challenges to the freedom of the press just before Watergate. “The Pentagon Papers” - top secret documents exposing the futility of American involvement in Vietnam from 1945 to 1967 - were leaked to the press in 1971. The film tells the story of The Washington Post’s decision to publish details in the face of legal action by the Government, and potentially serious consequences for the newspaper’s proposed stock market launch. Meryl Streep portrays the owner of The Post, Katherine Graham, who is close to the Washington elite and coming to grips with the role after her husband’s death. Tom Hanks plays the editor, Ben Bradlee, determined to publish after the New York Times is prevented from doing so by a Government injunction.
