When American military analyst, Daniel Ellsberg, realizes to his disgust the depths of the US government's deceptions about the futility of the Vietnam War, he takes action by copying top-secret documents that would become the Pentagon Papers. Later, Washington Post owner, Kay Graham, is still adjusting to taking over her late husband's business when editor Ben Bradlee discovers the New York Times has scooped them with an explosive expose on those papers. Determined to compete, Post reporters find Ellsberg himself and a complete copy of those papers. However, the Post's plans to publish their findings are put in jeopardy with a Federal restraining order that could get them all indicted for Contempt. Now, Kay Graham must decide whether to back down for the safety of her paper or publish and fight for the Freedom of the Press. In doing so, Graham and her staff join a fight that would have America's democratic ideals in the balance. Written by

It marks as the very first time Spielberg's regular editor Michael Kahn edits his film along with another editor, in this case Sarah Broshar, who has credits as associated editor in the previous Spielberg films. This is also the second Spielberg film to be edited by two people; the first film was Spielberg's theatrical debut, Sugarland Express (1974), which was edited by Edward M. Abroms and Verna Fields.

The song "Green River" by Creedence Clearwater Revival plays in the opening scene set in Vietnam. The scene is meant to take place in 1966 (as captioned at the start of the film). However, "Green River" was not released until 1969. See more »
Very slow, and boring revisionist history on actual events.
Poor Hollywood is dripping with false righteous indignation, and now the big movies are simply following suit. Hypocritical hype and oh so full of inaccuracies that there are too many to list. The acting is contrived and the dialogue reminds me of an old B movie: Lots of stern looks with nonsensical hyper blather. I see many reviews here that are based on their hatred of Trump and not the movie itself. Historical fact #1: JFK and Johnson were the primary cover-ups, not Nixon. Sorry, to those that hate blindly, but the truth does matter. Waste your money if you dare to.
