16 December 2017: Steven Spielberg’s new film “The Post” isn’t only a 1971 story of press opportunity or the place of ladies in the work environment.

It offers key conversation starters about the United States today, star Tom Hanks says.

“I think it’s a very good patriotic movie about ‘what is the state of America?’,” Hanks told Reuters at the world premiere in Washington D.C. on Thursday night.

“This is about a women’s place and equality in the workplace … It is definitely about the legacy of the Vietnam War and what 40 years of policy did to the United States of America. And it’s also about the journalistic integrity of people who view it as not their job, but their responsibility to go out and get the truth,” Hanks added.
