The real-life events of nearly half a century ago it depicts sizzle with vigor, suspense, and immediacy. and with an urgent relevance for today.
It happens to any good newspaper reporter. The script includes plenty of pointed, on-the-nose dialogue about the importance of journalism-"We have to be the check on their power", etc. -but The Post is considerably more entertaining simply observing as Bradlee and his staff fumble through the disorganized stack of documents, or when Bradlee sends an intern to spy on the Times to figure out what they've got, or even respecting the hard work of everyone from typesetters to workers on the loading docks who get the paper out into the world. He's a seasoned editor in the Washington Post's newsroom who is exhausted of having his lunch eaten on a daily basis by the New York Times.
Their report exposed what the USA government knew about the viability of the Vietnam war and its dire prospects.
When no one would listen to Ellsberg, he did what many whistleblowers do: he leaked the report to the New York Times. Tom Hanks is Executive Editor Ben Bradlee who holds his ground when Mrs Graham tries to intervene in the nitty gritty of coverage.

Speaking of authenticity: The real Pentagon Papers that Ellsberg copied are used in several scenes, including the sequences in which we see them scattered on the floor of Bradlee's home.
Yes, it was inspiring, a reminder to those of us who have remained in the newspaper business, amid all its changes and cutbacks, about why we keep on. Spielberg overdoes the "feminist hero" angle a little-at one point he shoots her ascending courthouse steps through a corridor of fawning female admirers, a bit of lily-gilding that's superfluous after a mother-daughter scene between Streep and Alison Brie that makes the same point better. Hanks' Bradlee sums it up nicely: President Nixon is "taking a shit all over the First Amendment". Each administration knew the war was unwinnable, but kept that fact from Congress and the American people. I don't think she had any intention [of declaring]. Just after the New York Times did an expose on the study, McNamara sort of leans on Graham to not do the story in her paper. I was rooting for him to get out of the Pentagon without getting caught.
