Steven Spielberg's new movie "The Post" isn't just a 1971 tale of press freedom or the place of women in the workplace. Actor Tom Hanks says the film poses key questions about the United States today.Starring Hanks as Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and Meryl Streep as Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham, "The Post" dramatizes the battle by newspapers in 1971 to publish the leaked Pentagon Papers detailing the U.S. government's misleading portrayal of the Vietnam War.Spielberg has said that he rushed to film and release the movie within a year because the parallels between 1971 and 2017 were "terrifyingly similar".
