The Post


'The Post' is set around the disclosure of the Pentagon Papers in the 1970s when first The New York Times and then the Washington Post newspapers published papers leaked by a military analyst revealed years of deceit by successive US Administrations over the progress and handling of the Vietnam War.

Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks are reliable as ever as the Post's Publisher and Editor respectively. An interesting reminder of events which led indirectly and eventually to the impeachment of a President.
