The story chronicles the efforts of the Washington Post’s publisher and editor to get the Pentagon Papers – classified documents about a US government cover-up of its actions in Vietnam – published. The cover-up had spanned the tenures of four Presidents, and it spurred Kay Graham, America’s first female newspaper publisher, and Ben Bradlee, the paper’s editor, to join an unprecedented battle between journalists and the government. This is an incredible true story directed by Steven Spielberg starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.
