    Great story. Enjoyed the actors and their portrayal of the paper’s struggle to publish.

    Would normaly love a movie like this. The cast looks great but the pace of the movie was just so painfully slow and the tension was just not there. I am sure that historically this was a very interesting and important moment for freedom of the press but is just did not hit the mark as a movie. Disappointed.

    This film almost gets the story right. The villains of the piece are JFK and LBJ who systematically lied to the American people for years about the nature, and prospects of the Vietnam war. RMN comes in for a lot of criticism too, however, with no mention that he was the president trying to end the war with a measure of face-saving for the country and his predecessors. Although he had no love for JFK and LBJ, he did care about the country and did not want our (very) dirty linen to harm the prospects for peace with the Vietcong. He also did not want folks leaking top secret national information to the press. That said, Spielberg created a watchable film out of the real life wonky characters. The standout performance is by Meryl Streep as the lockjawed Katherine Meyer Graham. She takes a socialite dilitante heiress and moves her into a serious newspaper publisher over the course of the film.
