A tribute to the power of journalism, the movie documents the early 1970’s battle between journalists from the Washington Post and the New York Times to publish the revelations of the US government’s involvement in the Vietnam war. The story of the Washington Post’s decision to publish the Pentagon Papers is an iconic moment in US history: the press claiming its own freedom to call out the excesses of power.

“Brisk, funny, suspenseful and inspiring.” Variety

“Timeless and enthralling.” Sydney Herald

“Excellent performances.” The Guardian

“A film that combines the spartan clarity of hard journalism with the raw suspense of an Indiana Jones adventure.” Indiewire
