The Post + Creative Intervention

In June 1971 The New York Times, the Washington Post and the nation’s major newspapers took a brave stand and reported on the Pentagon Papers, the massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned four decades and four US Presidents, including shocking information about US involvement in the Vietnam War. Harking back to the political thrillers of the 1970s, Spielberg directs Hanks and Streep in a script from Josh Singer, Academy Award winner for Spotlight.
