Graham, portrayed as a socialite who assumed control of the paper only because of the death of her husband, is more comfortable hosting soirees, and the Pentagon Papers affair forces her to find her agency against both the patriarchy and her own self-doubt.
She needs investors to save the business. Graham was close with McNamara and other powerful Washington insiders; they were often at her house, enjoying cocktails and insider chatter, even as Bradlee and his reporters were trying to unearth the dirt. She's an indecisive socialite who mixes with Washington's who's who including Robert McNamara, who was President Richard Nixon's Secretary of Defense.
That's because the administration doesn't want to be humiliated, and one of Spielberg's best decisions is the use of White House tapes to let us hear President Nixon voice his displeasure with stories by journalists he considered his "enemies". When the Times prints the first portions of the Pentagon Papers, his journalistic Spidey-senses start tingling.
At the time of the Pentagon Papers controversy, the Post had just become a publicly traded company, and Graham anxious that the defiant move, putting the newspaper at odds with the federal government, would give investors the jitters. We get Alison Brie as Kay's daughter, David Cross as a Post editor, and Zach Woods as a Post lawyer. It is pretty good, but not good enough to get into award-win territory.
History is a cycle, and some of the most relevant stories for today can be found in the past.
So he brought in Josh Singer, who won an Oscar with Tom McCarthy for "Spotlight", another film about journalism. Indeed, it's Graham's battle for respect as a woman in the all-male world of Wall Street that is "The Post"'smost engaging plot thread.
How the Pentagon Papers and some heady news work Bradlee and his staff of reporters turned the Washington Post from a so-so newspaper into a national news power is the focus of Spielberg'sfilm.
As he gets older, different stories seem to be interesting Steven Spielberg. Perhaps the socialite Graham was more comfortable in a ballroom than a boardroom, but her portrayal as a strong woman waiting to emerge from a dithering doyenne feels reductive. The film explores that in depth. Bradlee is a no-nonsense journalist. "I really love Charlie Wilson's War, and I really love Forrest Gump".
One thing that most insiders, critics, pundits and casual movie fans can agree on, though, is that five-time victor and 50-time nominee John Williams will once again be in the mix come Oscartime for his latest sure to be majestic film score.
Jill Zarin's Husband Bobby Dead of Cancer at 71 Jill and Bobby celebrated their 18th anniversary on January 4. "Happy 18th! Anniversary to the love of my life Bobby Zarin ". Jill remained by his bedside while treatment continued, and never let is condition get her down about their relationship.

Her right hand man is Ben Bradlee, the Post's editor, played by Tom Hanks. The 75th Golden Globe Awards will be held on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018 on NBC.
Hanks does a good job here, though there are times when you catch him giving us a Perry White imitation rather than a newspaper man that bleeds ink.
The other likely award victor from The Post could be it's director, some kid named Spielberg. Unfinished? Eastwood-ian? The astonishing thing is that while there are a few clunkers (as if a parody, the film actually opens in Vietnam to the sound of helicopters and Creedence Clearwater Revival), on the whole, "The Post" is meat and potatoes Spielberg in the best possible way. Penny Marshall, I made multiple movies with her.
"I read the script".
The Post'smessage is similar to that of Spotlight, another champion of good journalism and victor of 2015's Best Picture: The media, for all its myriad faults, is still an important bulwark for democracy, serving as a necessary check to those elected to power as well as informing citizens and voters.
