If you’re into history, political dramas, and/or just like your movies to start with that drop-in, “Based On a True Story” then, 20th Century Fox is about to release a film that’s right up your alley.
The first female publisher of a major American newspaper, Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep), and editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) and their unlikely partnership revolving around trying to “one-up” the New York Times and print what could be the story of the century: exposing a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. This story is largely responsible for The Washington Post’s reputation and well-known quote located on the top of its newsprint (and website).
If that’s got you curious then you’ve got to watch film’s first trailer:
Grahm and Bradlee will have to set aside their differences and settle old disagreements as they put both their careers and their freedom on the line in order to bring the truth out into the glaring light of day.
Cast: Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, Zach Woods.
