Spielberg’s thrilling drama centres on the Washington Post’s Katherine Graham, the first female publisher of a major American newspaper. Graham forms an alliance with editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), as they risk their careers, and compete with the New York Times, to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets spanning three decades and four US presidents. With Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks surrounded by a highly acclaimed ensemble cast, accomplished performances abound in a 1970s tale with clear relevance for the present day. Screened on International Women’s Day.
