Streep says 'We can get through this moment' at NBR Awards

039;Saving Mr Banks'- Closing Night Gala European Premiere- Red Carpet Arrivals 57th BFI London Film Festival

The Post was the big victor at the National Board of Review Awards on Tuesday night in New York City.

Washington Post owner Kay Graham (Meryl Streep in a quiet performance that ends in an exclamation point) is caught between saving the family business by appealing to its shareholders and not battling the president, or joining the paper's editor-in-crusader Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) in a march down a potentially calamitous path for the paper, her family's business, and her reputation should the Supreme Court rule against the Post and Times.

Ultimately, "The Post" is about abuse of power at the highest levels and accountability, which couldn't be more timely.

For Spielberg, the timing of the film wasn't accidental. It is Liz Hannah's first screenplay.

As far as what Spielberg hopes the nation and perhaps the current administration takes away from the movie: "The truth must trump the lie", he said.

The movie was filmed while Spielberg was waiting for the special effects to be completed on another one of his new movies, "Ready Player One", based on the novel by Austin's Ernie Cline.

Indian National Anthem No Longer Mandatory in Cinemas
This was conveyed to the Supreme Court in an affidavit filed by Deepak Kumar, Under Secretary in the Union Home Ministry.

"He's the person having the most fun", says Hannah of Spielberg. Intellectually she's qualified, he energy her stamina, her passion. Once it was bought, Pascal was not only able to interest Hanks and Streep, but she was also able to snare Spielberg, who was stalled in production on another film. At that time The Post was a local newspaper that was given to her husband to run by Graham's father. Her mentors include Public Theater founder Joseph Papp and directors Mike Nichols and Alan Pakula. Striding into boardrooms overflowing with men, Graham appears mousy and deferential to her ally and chairman of the board Fritz Beebe (Tracy Letts). "Our film, in this very fraught moment, is about the best working situation between a man and a woman where respect and devotion to the work and to the honor of the work is paramount".

Much of the time, The Post feels like two different movies pasted together, which makes it a bit less effective as either one. "And it sure was my experience in The Post". As her commitment develops she conveys every nuance of her evolving and shifting mood from conflicted doubt to epiphany. The film is a tribute to the people that do good work and are willing to hold the powerful accountable.

Jordan Peele's Get Out also took home multiple honors, one for Peele for Best Directorial Debut and one for the film's ensemble. Even if you know the story and its beats, "The Post" is still enthralling, inspiring entertainment.

The two, who received a Golden Globes nomination for the script, were on the set as Spielberg began filming May 30. "We are living in a world that continues to fail to properly acknowledge the systemic racism of this country". Though it's just reaching Triangle theaters, it's one of the best, most important films of previous year. Willem Dafoe won Best Supporting Actor for his work in The Florida Project. Also that her personal friend, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara (Bruce Greenwood), is the initiator of the report, eventually named 'The Pentagon Papers, ' doesn't make her life less complicated. She said that she first knew she wanted to be a director after an "inspirational aerobics class" and thanked the room for being included in the industry.

The newsroom back-and-forth, the period details of typewriters and lead type, and Hanks' gleefully gruff turn as the hard-charging Bradlee are cinematic catnip for any newspaper junkie (like me).
