What is The Post about?

In 1966, during the midst of the Vietnam War (1961-1975), U.S. State Department military analyst Daniel Ellsberg (Matthew Rhys), accompanies American troops in combat in South Vietnam, documenting the U.S. military progress in the region for Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara (Bruce Greenwood). On the flight home, Secretary McNamara privately tells Ellsberg and William B. Macomber that the Vietnam War is hopeless. Upon landing, however, he tells the congregated media in a press conference, that he has every confidence in the war effort. Ellsberg, overhearing this adrupt turn-about, quickly becomes disillusioned. Years later, as a civilian military contractor/consultant working for the RAND Corporation (a military/defense "think tank"), Ellsberg surreptitiously photocopies hundreds of pages of classified reports documenting the country's decades-long involvement in the conflict in Vietnam, dating back to the Harry S. Truman presidential administration (1945-1953). Ellsberg then leaks these documents first to The New York Times, through reporter Neil Sheehan (Justin Swain).
In that same year of 1971, newspaper heiress Katharine Graham tries to balance a busy social life with responsibilities as owner and publisher for only eight years of The Washington Post, following the previous deaths of her husband, Phil Graham as a tragic suicide, and her father, Eugene Meyer in 1963. She nervously prepares for the newspaper's stock-market launch, a move to help financially stabilize the paper. Graham lacks journalistic experience and is frequently overruled by her domineering male financial advisers and news editors, including editor-in-chief (executive editor) Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) and board member Arthur Parsons (Bradley Whitford).
