    Interesting, always knew the US should not have been in Viet Nam for years, heartbreaking for American families that lost loved ones in this war. Great acting.

    Streep and Hanks are horrible people and no one should waste their hard earned money to see this movie! Loud mouthed Hollywood activists need to be put in their place now! They think they are important and special, and know everything, but all they ever do is memorize lines for a movie! Thatís it!

    An important movie like "All The Presidents Men" was back in the 1970's. The first hour is a bit boring. But later it gets rolling into the importance of the press in a free society and the drama builds. Will she publish or not ?! Best scenes are the restaurant meetings, editorial meetings and the press room when it finally gets rolling. Good stuff. You'll learn new info and have better insights into what happens when a government runs amuck . It applies to the present day.

    Will not see the movie, but anything Meryl Streep is in would be a si-fi with no truth in it. Hope enough people quit going to her movies so she disappears. They have ruined all the awards shows with there agendas no longer will watch them which is a shame to the profession. How a few un-Americans can ruin it for others

    Outstanding portrayal of a major historical event, and a vivid reminder of the patriarchy of a few decades ago . . . 92/100 . . . guru bob

    Boring as heck until Meryl Streep's character finally grew a pair and made a brave decision, one that could have had dire consequences. It angered me that American governments are so frivolous with people's lives.

    Great telling of newspaper courage -- a companion-piece to "Spotlight". The audience applauded.

    If you like history watch this movie. This is not a story, it really happened. The freedom of the press is the base of the story. What made this movie interesting to me is that after WWII the Truman administration paid the French to fight the beginning of the Vietnam war. Every President afterward backed the war for 30 years. The New Times and Katherine Grahamís Washington Post put their news paperís reputation on the chopping block. Graham and others faced prison if they lost the judgement. She banked her trust on the Supreme Court and the 4 amendment. The Post and NY Times won that battle of that day but powers that be today may win out this time. What was Spielberg message to viewers? Not sure only time will tell. He showed how women of that day were locked out of most business decisions. Get coffee, type a memo, stand behind closed doors that what women jobs are but certainly do not stand up to attorneys and board members or the President. Many news publishers along with their neighbors children were overseas fighting that war. I was up for the draft and my older brother and young men we knew were serving in the military at that time. Everyday I would read the news paper to see how many boys were killed and hoping for the safety of my brother. The only real issue to me at the time was the draft. Today Iím 65 and able to see that The Post brings forth many more issues. I say itís a thinking mans/womanís movie.
