Finally, we have our first look at what I think could be one of this year’s big Oscar movies.
Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post.
The film tells the story of the Washington Post’s first female publisher Kay Graham (Meryl Streep) and its editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) attempts to publish the Pentagon Papers, a political cover-up about the Vietnam War that spanned three decades and four U.S. presidents.
The period film has an all-star cast headed by Oscar-winners Hanks and Streep and also includes Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, and Zach Woods.
It arrives in UK cinemas on January 19th.
