The Post (2017)


The story will tell of a 1971 scandal following the decision of Washington Post editor Ben Bradley (Hanks) and author Catharine Graham (Streep) to publish Pentagon papers.
They prove the involvement of Johnson’s administration and the fact that he lied to the public and Congress about US military intervention in Vietnam. Documents also reveal that Nixon and his administration secretly led to escalation of military action. Nixon’s footprints attempt to stop the publication, but in the ensuing case, the court ruled in favor of the newspaper.
