Film Review:The Post 2017 (9/10)

THE POST

Director: Steven Spielberg

Starring: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenlirk, Tracy Letts, Bradley Whitford, Bruce Greenwood,

This is really an incredible film by all standards. One of those films that I think will be a cinema classic for many years. Not only it highlights the heroic role played by brave journalists and reporters through history in bringing the truth to the public but it also goes beyond that to show the powerful role of wise women in a male dominant society where women were repeatedly marginalized.

Brilliantly orchestrated by the great Steven Spielberg who has put it all together in a very elegant prestigious manner. Everyone gave an excellent performance but in an easy smooth way.

Myrl Streep moves, speaks and performs as if she has been Katharine Graham all her life and the same really applies for Tom Hanks who played Ben Bradlee. But not only the actors/actresses’ performance was great, everything else is. The way they showed how newspapers used to be produced, showing the use of type writers, how they send the articles to printing and how the papers are distributed.

Despite knowing that the chosen time for producing such film was specifically intentional to display Hollywood stand to Trump, I still think this film will always be remembered through history.
