The film depicts journalists from The Washington Post and The New York Times who published the leaked documents of the Pentagon Papers regarding the involvement of the United States’ government during the Vietnam War.
“A thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents.
The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.”
Directed by Steven Spielberg, the script was written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer.
Produced by Spielberg, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Amy Pascal.
The Post is scheduled to hit limited theaters in the United States on December 13, 2017, and in wide release on January 12, 2018.
