Whether this depiction is true or not - and the real-life Graham indeed confessed to a lack of self-confidence fostered by the sexism surrounding her - the screenwriters clearly see it as a dramatic necessity to tee up an eventual heroic climax of fearless conviction on Graham's part. Washington, D.C.is not a large enough town to have a national brand name paper and of course, she's a woman. Graham reminds him of his close friendship with the Kennedys, and how that compromised Bradlee's journalistic integrity. Then the Times comes out with its first story about the damning documents. He doesn't believe in anything standing between the public and the truth. It would be nice if Trump's staffers, when they watch the movie, take the story's lessons to heart. Because the Post is behind the curve (the New York Times got the documents first), they have to play catch-up. The leaked, top-secret documents detailed the escalation of the Vietnam War and showed that the US government knew that the conflict was unwinnable.
The New York Times has the report, then is thwarted by an injunction. The film's latter half is largely given to Ben's team rushing to get the story into print without opening the paper up to prosecution, and Spielberg whisks us along in zesty fashion. She rehearses key points, she takes notes, she takes a deep breath - but she rarely gets the chance to speak. The film received six Golden Globe nominations and stands to be nominated for several Oscars later this month.
Known for her style and ability to make fashion statements, Streep complimented the outfit with a sparkling knuckle-duster clutch, also by Alexander McQueen. Bradley Whitford, a star of the television show "The West Wing", plays Arthur Parsons, a fictional character who advises Graham. It's fitting of Streep's current role in Hollywood's #MeToo moment. Seriously, I had goosebumps on my arms watching tied-up bundles of newspapers being tossed onto trucks about to bring Truth to the world. Her father had left control of the publication to her husband.

She needs investors to save the business.
Steven Spielberg has made movies about dinosaurs and sharks and aliens and adventurin' archeologists and war horses and crime-predicting psychics and big friendly giants. But in recent years, the 71-year-old director has grown more contemplative, using his gifts behind the camera to tell stories about how America can be the best possible America, from the complex legislative sausage-making of Lincoln to the defense of civil liberties in Bridge of Spies. Since that time, he has thrown himself into historical dramas like Bridge of Spies and sweeping epics like War Horse and Lincoln. But "The Post" remains a timely film.
Not surprisingly, both Streep and Hanks are terrific.
De Villiers happy with South Africa's India preparation
Hardik Pandya has been a welcome change for Indian cricket which has always struggled for an allrounder since the great Kapil Dev. Cheteshwar Pujara became the rock of the Indian middle order by churning out consistent performances with the willow.
Up stood Bradlee and his prestige-hungry, competitive bunch at the Post - if only their anxious, insecure and financially embattled publisher would back their play and establish her individualism and courage against everything her life up to then had preferred that she never do. Now it was up to Katharine Graham whether to risk violating the court order by publishing the papers in the Post.
To put it in terms that meant a lot more at the time, Spielberg has delivered an above-the-fold story. The film is a tribute to the people that do good work and are willing to hold the powerful accountable.
These challenges can't completely be overcome, no matter how many times they crank up the John Williams score, and so the movie sags in the middle. It's so easy to smile and go along, the movie admits, but what will it cost you in the end.
