On January 12 of this year, “The Post” hit theatres. It stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks and was directed by legendary Steven Spielberg. Streep plays Katharine Graham, the first American female publisher of a state-wide newspaper, while Hanks, in this non-fictional movie, acts the part of the newspaper’s editor.

After another competing newspaper publishes a glimpse of the Pentagon papers, Graham and her company discover the rest of the government secrets in their hands. It’s up to them to reveal what the government has been hiding for decades. Will they exercise their right to publish, or will they stay silent? This movie will beautifully provide you insight into a court case that relates to even today’s society, and it’ll teach you more than your history class has.
