At the time of the Pentagon Papers controversy, the Post had just become a publicly traded company, and Graham anxious that the defiant move, putting the newspaper at odds with the federal government, would give investors the jitters.
Early past year, when directorSteven Spielberg saw and heard what was unfolding in the new Trump White House, he seized the script for this film about uncovering government lies and he ran with it.

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. But this really is one of her best performances in a while, with a real arc to it as we see Graham's spine stiffen and eyes clear as she finds the strength to assert herself.

"I want all of the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon", she declared at the Los Angeles prizegiving.
Yes, and it all began with Ellsberg, who has prominent scenes early in the movie (he is played by Matthew Rhys of the TV series "The Americans") but unfortunately is not seen much in the film's dramatic second half.
After a court order halted the New York Times' publication, the Post got its own copy and had to decide whether to step up, tell the truth, and defy the court order. Indeed, Ellsberg was prosecuted under the Espionage Act and faced the possibility of a 115-year sentence.
