This movie tries to be "All the President's Men" but doesn't come remotely close. Acting is poor and casting of the two major characters is even more poor.
Like movies that are historical. liked this one.
It gets across the intensity of that real life story.
Boring pretty much throughout. To save her career Streep got on the Me Too bandwagon when she's actually the poster girl for the We Knew one.
Very informative and the acting was great
If I wanted to see a movie take so long to turn into anything significant I'd watch a documentary.
Excellent, pertinent. A key historical event well presented. Portrays the relevance and importance of a free press and how intelligent, inquisitive minds utilized the tools of investigative reporting for that event and the one that followed -suggested at he end of the movie-, which resulted in the resignation of President Nixon. Meryl Streep and her magnificent portrayal of Katherine Graham, is testimony to her excellent acting.
Horrible and boring. Slept through most of it
I read a lot of the reviews here (many against, some for) that seemed like the person writing the review had made up their mind about it for political reasons before even having seen it. Some of them have likely reviewed it without ever seeing it. I did see the film and I know the actual history behind the events. And while not perfect, I thought it was pretty good overall. One thing that impressed me was that as the story built to its conclusion, I felt real suspense despite knowing how things turned out. If you can make a picture that does that, somebody's doing something right.
One doesn't expect a show such as this to be fast paced but it was nevertheless quite dull.
