‘The Post,” the new movie starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, is three things: a film about the Pentagon Papers, classified documents about the Vietnam War that were leaked to the media in 1971, a film about the press and Donald Trump, and, finally, an indictment about Harvey Weinstein and sexism in Hollywood.
According to Streep, who is interviewed on December 14 in the Washington Post, the film is mostly about sexism. Streep says that the new film came from a place of “grievance” about sexism.
“People were really scared and demoralized [after Trump was elected],” Streep told the Post. But her passion for the film came from a different place. “The passion, honestly, that I had wasn’t political on that end,” Streep said. “It was political on the feminist end. I wish that my citizen heart beat harder than the one that feels the grievance, but that’s the way it goes.”
Still, for openly liberal Streep, the political component is too strong to totally ignore. Hornaday reports that “Streep recalled the days immediately after the election when, alarmed by reports of possible Russian hacking, she got together with Robert De Niro, producer Jane Rosenthal and others (including a former FBI agent) to discuss their anxieties.”
Hornaday concludes: “What Spielberg might have intended as a reminder of the principles of a free press standing firm in the face of a paranoid and hostile presidency has, perhaps more meaningfully, become a portrait of a woman born into privilege, but still having to battle systemic sexism, the condescension of her male colleagues and her own internalized self-doubt to come into her own as a corporate leader and journalist.”
Sounds like “The Sarah Palin Story.”

Just shut up.
Just shut the **** up.
Streep. Rhymes with Creep, beep, and peep.
Why not make a movie about the attempt to retrieve a sunken Soviet sub? It only cost the taxpayer billions of dollars and provided priceless intelligence which was all thrown away after the Los Angeles Times revealed the effort. Too bad Nixon did not have the traitors involved executed.
It'll get worse if this is what they have to offer. They got comic book superheroes and this dreck, and they're running out of superheroes...
All the talent in the world can’t make up for such profound arrogance, wilful ignorance, fundamentally hateful motives and an ingracious contempt for moviegoers who have made them rich.
Another Hollywood block buster? As in a real bomb? Hey, its their invested money.
I hope they all used their own money to produce the crap, and it tanks at the box office.
I used to admire the acting skills of Meryl Streep but she has spoiled that with her rabid anti-Trumpisms. Exit stage left. And flux Hollyweird too— I’m boycotting them all.
No....people were not scared and demoralized after Trump was elected...people were really happy and relieved
They use ART to push a liberal social agenda????
Fuch them all.
Proud to not support any of the libtard arts.
Knowing Hollywood they'll portray sexist abusers as Conservatives... when the problem has shown itself as one of liberal elites...
Here's some pictures Streep can use:
Did these three ladies have a good cry together in a safe space?
Movies about Marvel comic characters keep Hollywierd afloat, allowing bombs such as this to be made.
Meryl Strep - just hearing her name makes your throat turns scarlet red from screaming “STHU!”
I think the one politicking in this movie, is Hanks.
Just saying. Less and less impressed with the guy, as I learn more about his views.
This movie will get her a nomination and will tank at the box office. They want her on stage to deliver her next oration at the oscars. Saw a 90 second trailer and fell asleep about half way through.
More Leftwing garbage.
I hope they sink all their own money into these type of propaganda films.
