Spotlight was the last great movie to show the drama that unfolds in a newsroom. Though, to be fair, there have been many other success stories where the action happens over coffee and reporter’s notebooks. The next movie that will prove journalism can make great movie fodder is The Post, a historical drama from Steven Spielberg that tells the story of the Pentagon Papers. Need further proof this will be big? How about the names involved? They include Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Sarah Paulson, and Bob Odenkirk. Streep plays Kay Graham, the first female newspaper publisher of The Washington Post, as she teams up with reporter Ben Bradlee (Hanks) in an effort to uncover the lies the Johnson Administration told over the Vietnam War and to compete with The New York Times in the release of accurate information. With a December 22 release date, this has awards written all over it.
