Review: The Post

The dramatic retelling of how the Washington Post came to publish details of the Pentagon papers is a timely, perhaps even cynically so, piece given the political climate in the US right now.  One wonders if the current Whitehouse incumbent will end up watching it on TV while devouring a burger and regard it as the smack on the nose it is clearly intended to be.

Politics aside, it's good to see various Hollywood heavy weights - actors and director - gathered together for an outing which, if it doesn't quite see them stretching themselves, makes for a highly compelling and enjoyable watch.

Verdict: Highly recommended.
