“THE POST” Review of the movie.
Early this afternoon, my friend Laura Valencia invited me to go with her to the movies. She knew that I love anything “newspaper related”. So we went to our local movie theater and enjoyed the show.
#The Post -the movie- carries an emotional theme: The Vietnam War.
But it is not about the war, it is about the lies the government feeds to “the people”. Such intrigue all around the characters. The woman, -Merryl Streep- had inherited The Washington Post from her father but her husband who had also died had run it ever since. She did not know how to run a newspaper; all she ever did was go to parties and enjoy celebrity.
Anyhow, when the time came for her to “face life” at The Post, she came through.
This is a REFRESHER COURSE ON THE FIRST AMENDMENT: FREEDOM OF THE PRESS and how Presidents and Government manipulate and want to keep manipulating the PRESS.
I totally loved it.
Thanks, Laurita for letting me know about this meaningful movie so “relevant” in this day and age.
Tom Hanks also stars in the movie and makes a great performance, like he usually does.
