THE POST has been nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Picture and Actress in a Leading Role! In 1971, the Washington Post joined with the New York Times in publishing the Pentagon Papers: leaked, classified documents revealing a long-running criminal cover-up by the United States government. The report exposed decades of lies about American military involvement in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, doing much to sway public opinion on the Vietnam War. THE POST is the story of Washington Post publisher Kay Graham (three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (two-time winner Tom Hanks), as they engage in a bitter fight for truth. Trapped between journalistic instincts and a government that would have them imprisoned, Graham and Bradlee face the challenge of their careers - and of their lifetimes. Directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg in June of 2017, THE POST is a potent film for our times. A testament to the power and importance of the free press, it's a story of brave Americans risking everything to save the soul of their country. With a script by Liz Hannah and SPOTLIGHT's Josh Singer, a stellar supporting ensemble, and a score by John Williams, THE POST is a must-see film for 2017 and beyond.
