Up-and-coming Hollywood talents Steven Spielberg (Bridge of Spies, Lincoln), Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady), and Tom Hanks (Cloud Atlas) team up for the first time in the fact-based newspaper drama The Post.

Determined to uphold the nation’s civil liberties in the early 1970s, Katharine Graham (Streep), publisher of The Washinton Post, and hard-nosed editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks) join forces to expose a decades-long cover-up centering around Vietnam via the publishing of “The Pentagon Papers.”  But the two must risk their careers –– and their freedom –– to bring truth to light in this powerful film with a celebrated cast.
