Film directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg with a star studded cast of Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks to name a few. Set in the 1970's where Richard Nixon was president of the United States, the story depicts true events of how the government covered up the Watergate scandal for over 30 years which was first released by the New York Times after receiving classified documents from an anonymous source.
During the course of these events the government barred the Times from publishing anymore and it was left to the country's first female newspaper publisher of The Washington Post to take lead and expose the truth, which has an overwhelming affect across the nation and Nixon was charged for obstructing the law of Justice and forced him to resign from his post.
This film gives us a reminder to how one government can hold so much power in the world and manipulate our mindset over what is really truth over and what they deem manageable. It also feels relevant to current affairs with the leadership of Donald Trump and how he leads by example and the people he stays in communication on enemy lines.
