Screen Seven The Post

Mon 17th September 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

- £6

The Post is a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham, the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee, 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.

In June 1971 The New York Times, the Washington Post and the nation’s major newspapers took a brave stand for freedom of speech and reported on the Pentagon Papers, the massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned four decades and four US Presidents.

At the time, the Post’s Katherine Graham was still finding her footing as the country’s first female newspaper publisher, and Ben Bradlee, the paper’s volatile, driven editor, was trying to enhance the stature of the struggling, local paper.

Together, the two formed an unlikely team, as they were forced to come together and make the bold decision to support The New York Times and fight the Nixon Administration’s unprecedented attempt to restrict the first amendment.

Dir: Steven Spielberg, UK, 2017,  1hr 56min, 12A.

Stars: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson
