In 1971, the Washington Post got a hold of the Pentagon Papers, the classified government study that detailed the true scope-and likelihood of success-of America's involvement in Vietnam. Publisher Katherine Graham (Meryl Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) made the wrenching call to bring the story to public light... and face a possibly ruinous court battle over the documents' suppression.
