Meryl Streep Got Medical Marijuana For Christmas

The Post European Premiere – London

"I want to thank you for making them and I want to thank you for including me in everything". There is a sequence late in the film that chronicles the assembly of the next morning's edition that is truly fascinating in that it shows how much things have changed as well as how much work was required in order to make a deadline in those heydays of print.

Meryl Streep cut a stunning figure in black on the red carpet at the London premiere of her new film, The Post, earlier this week.

You are relieved that Tom Hanks has finally gotten a good role.

Spielberg makes no direct indication of his intent, the opportunistic quality of the project is enough to suggest as much. While certain scenes generate fleeting sparks (tense talks between Graham and personal friend Robert McNamara, well played by Bruce Greenwood), the filmmakers' solution tends to be the characters speechifying, posing and repeatedly declaiming the stakes ("We could all go to prison").

You want to remember how good the church could be.

Ellsberg also said something that day which rings true in 2017: "I'm struck by the fact that people get to be president who suffer from the same inadequate, fatuous understanding of the world that I had at age 31".

The Post, which also took home best film and actor (Hanks), chronicles The Washington Post's 1971 decision to publish the Pentagon Papers, led by publisher Katharine Graham and editor Ben Bradlee. They are documents that prove the United States government has known for years that the war in Vietnam is not winnable and covered that fact up through four presidencies, all the while sending more young men into battle, because losing wars isn't something the US does.

The publication of the papers, which had already occurred in the New York Times, was fraught with peril because the government had threatened to sue the paper.

Throughout her career, Meryl Streep has received 20 Oscar nominations as well as three victories for "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979), "Sophie's Choice" (1982) and "The Iron Lady" (2011). You feel like there should be ink on your fingers at the end of the movie.


The story begins just after Graham - with nearly no experience running a newspaper - had hired the now legendary Ben Bradlee as the newspaper's editor. "President Obama said in a recent interview, 'It's not that democracy is fragile but it's reversible.' I wanted to do more than just sit down and watch television and complain to (wife Kate Capshaw) and my kids about what's happening to our country".

Of course, should the paper lose the court fight, it's not just Graham who would suffer: Bradlee is probably out of a job, as are several other editors and perhaps even several reporters. The government is arguing that printing them is a national security risk.

Marcil, former longtime publisher of The Forum and chairman of Forum Communications Co., knew Graham as Kay.

In 1984, Graham wrote Marcil a letter with word that the Washington Post had acquired half ownership of Cablecom, the cable television service. Time's up, indeed. For one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood, she delivers a stellar performance, regal yet grounded, steely yet vulnerable. "The Post" - like "Spotlight" two years ago - respects the craft, the mission and the thrill of journalism, as well as those dedicated to carrying it out.

Churches should see themselves in this movie.

Oscar victor Meryl Streep is convinced pal Oprah Winfrey is seriously considering a presidential run in 2020. The church, like the board of the Post, is tempted to focus on survival.

During times where fascists use fake news to obfuscate the truth and deem real news as fake because it paints them in bad light and proves their wrongdoings, The Post is an important film. Americans have the Constitution. He doesn't believe in anything standing between the public and the truth. When the church is courageous, the church attracts those who want to live with conviction.

In "The Post" that scene plays out on the steps of the Supreme Court.
