It is fascinating to see Kay Graham (Meryl Streep) come into her own.  Starting as a woman who can’t speak for herself to becoming someone who confronts the government and old friends to do what she thinks is right.  The conversation between Graham and her daughter, Lally (Allison Brie) is very telling.  Tom Hanks frenetic portrayal of Ben Bradlee is on point.  Sarah Paulson is charming as the perfect wife, accepting her home’s invasion and graciously feeding the horde.  The growing professional relationship between Graham and Bradlee is a pleasure to watch.  Bradley Whitford, Bruce Greenwood, Bob Odenkirk and Matthew Rhys round out the amazing cast.   Steven Spielberg does a fine job keeping the mood taut in this well done biopic.  The attention paid to the actual printing presses and the linotype machines give the movie an old school feel. The Post
