Shot, cut, and released in a matter of months, THE POST crackles with an intense urgency that propels the film forward at a breakneck pace. With a whip-smart screenplay by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer, this riveting film about Katherine Graham and Ben Bradlee's decision about whether or not to publish The Pentagon Papers is one of the great films about journalism, paericularlt calling to mind ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN. Driven by an immensely satisfying, complex performance from Meryl Streep who is perfectly complemented by Tom Hanks, THE POST is a suspenseful true-life drama that creates a disturbing but necessary dialogue between past and present.
Liz Hannah is a screenwriter best known for writing the acclaimed films THE POST and LONG SHOT and executive producing THE DROPOUT, for which she was nominated for an Emmy. She also created and was the showrunner for THE GIRL FROM PLAINVILLE and wrote for and produced MINDHUNTER.
