If you don’t remember or don’t know the story behind the Pentagon Papers, look it up. This movie outlines the debate by the Washington Post about printing those revelatory documents. Meryl Streep plays the paper’s publisher, who must make the decision that risks the future of her business. Tom Hanks gets to be a bit gruff as the editor who fights for freedom of the press. Streep plays a subdued character, but still subtlety broadcasts every moment of doubt, as well as her discomfort with her treatment as a woman. The story is compelling and director Steven Spielberg sometimes uses swirling camerawork to create tension. On the other hand, the political debate sometimes seem repetitious and the film takes too long to get to the conclusion. Overall, this film serves as a fascinating history lesson told in a compelling manner.
