This is not the first time director Steven Spielberg undertakes to tell in his films about real people or events that have left a loud mark in world history. There is in the master's piggy bank a dramatic film about the horrors of the Holocaust, and a picture of the struggle to abolish slavery, and a biographical film about the sixteenth US President Abraham Lincoln. Now the director decided to raise the topic of the media and freedom of speech, which is relevant to this day. And when Spielberg invites such Hollywood stars as Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep to his project, interest in him increases tenfold.|
The plot of the historical drama "The Secret Dossier" is set in 1971, when the press received at its disposal the Pentagon documents, which detailed the US involvement in the political life of Vietnam for three decades. The Washington Post publisher Catherine Graham (Streep) and editor-in-chief Ben Bradley (Hanks), along with colleagues from the New York Times, decide to publish the scandalous materials. However, the American political establishment, led by President Nixon, is trying to challenge in the Supreme Court the right of journalists to cover secret archives about the Vietnam War and is threatening to close the newspapers. At the risk of everything, Graham and Bradley will fight to release information about the government conspiracy.
In addition to Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkerk, Alison Brie, Bradley Whitford, Carrie Coon, David Cross and Bruce Greenwood took part in the filming. Given the topicality of the plot, the eminent director and the talented cast, one can already predict the future of one of the main contenders for the Oscar. Whether someone from the Secret Dossier team will be able to take the coveted statuette with them will only become known in March 2018, when the 90th anniversary awards ceremony will take place. In the meantime, we bring to your attention a dubbed trailer of the film, which will be released in USA on February 1.
