Rhino love The Post. Think Thomas Hanks and Merril Strep are fantastic actors who act fantastic. Supporting cast is as solid as my horn or big rock.

The Post (2017): Directed by Steven Spielberg, The Post tells the tale of The Washington Post’s publishing of the Pentagon Papers. Meryl Streep is brilliant as Katherine Graham, the Post’s owner. She’s trying to work in a very male world at a job she wasn’t meant to have. Tom Hanks chews the scenery nicely as Post editor, Ben Bradley (Jason Robards played Bradley in an Oscar-winning performance in All the President’s Men - 1976). It was a great & very timely film. Great supporting cast of familiar & not so familiar faces. And I counted at least 3 Fargo (2014-) alums! #thepost#stevenspielberg#tomhanks#merylstreep#oscarbait
My review of “The Post”- Much responsibility is given to a journalist. It is their job to find the stories Americans need to know, and it is a journalists responsibility to convey the information in the most accurate manner possible. Being given such important stories to work with, much time and care should be given by the journalists to portray the story accurately.Sometimes though, time is not a resource the journalist gets, and while mistakes can happen when a journalist is rushed to give their opinion, I believe that they should still have the right to publish, repercussions be damned. The power that a writer is given is very powerfully shown in “The Post,’’ the fantastic political thriller by Steven Spielberg. Featuring a fantastic acting ensemble (including Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, and Sarah Paulson to name a few), this film is about the struggle that the press faced when an enormous presidential cover-up is uncovered. The news related to the Vietnam war is monumental, and Kay Graham (played by Meryl Streep) is aware of this. She believes that the Americans must know that the war they are fighting is an unnecessary war to partake in. However, Kay also believes that publishing the story could lead to severe consequences for her. Kay is the first female newspaper publisher, and she could lose her job if she decides that the story should go out to the public. If Kay were to lose her job, this would not only be a crippling defeat for her, but for all women trying to fight for equality in a male-dominated world. The stakes are similarly high for Ben Bradlee and Ben Bagdikian (Tom Hanks and Bob Odenkirk respectively), who could face jail time if the government finds legal issues with the story. However, despite the fallout that could ensue, these women and man published anyways, believing that the public’s right to know was more important than the journalist's safety. Their decision was a noble one, as well as a very enthralling one to watch unfold. For most of its runtime, “The Post” is incredibly exciting to watch. Its last hour, in particular, is so riveting, so intense, and so exhilarating that it is impossible to not be in awe.(Continued)
Steven Spielberg was rejected from USC TWICE!
One of the most prolific filmmakers of all time, the man who brought us “Shindler’s List,” “Jaws,” “E.T.” and “Jurassic Park” couldn’t get into the film school of his choice. Maybe, just sometimes, education can be a little overrated. In the end, Spielberg would get the last laugh, when USC awarded him an honorary degree in 1994. Two years later, he became a trustee of the university. Via @huffpost #whynotus 🤔 #stevenspielberg
