The Post (2017)

Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep) is the first female publisher of a major American newspaper -- The Washington Post. With help from editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), Graham races to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spans three decades and four U.S. presidents. Together, they must overcome their differences as they risk their careers -- and very freedom -- to help bring long-buried truths to light.


otsoNY Comments: The first choice of the production designer, Rick Carter, was the building at 229 West 43rd Street, off Times Square, that actually served The Times in 1971. It still has a 300-foot-long array of globe lights, a memorable streetfront souvenir of the days when The Times was edited and printed there.But thanks to the great globe lights at its front door, the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen in mid-Manhattan was selected as the headquarters of The New York Times.
