An historical political thriller telling the story of how, in 1966, US military analyst Daniel Ellsberg realises the extent of his government's deceptions about the war in Vietnam.
He later copies secret documents which reveal the true picture of the American war effort and leaks them to the New York Times.
Washington Post owner, Kay Graham (Meryl Streep), who has recently taken over her late husband's business is adjusting to her new situation when her editor, Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), discovers the New York Times has beat them to an exposé on the story.
The Post is determined to compete and its reporters find Ellsberg and a copy of the papers. Its plans to publish are threatened by a Federal restraining order and Kay must choose between the risk of losing her newspaper or fighting for the Freedom of the Press.
Also stars: Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk & Matthew Rhys.
