The Post

Plus ca change

(Edit) 22/07/2020

Having lived in DC at the time of Kennedy and LB J, this true story was particularly interesting and shocking. A well acted, intriguing period piece. Yet another reminder never, ever to trust politicians  (The UK Russian revelations came out today) or the Media

Generally, I agree with the reviewer below who is fed up with Americafocus, but that's - yawn - Hollywood for ya. Another flick about middle America and I'll......  But I chose it for its truth, politics and Meryl Streep

A Private War

More films about real-life amazing women desperately needed. So much potential for powerful films

(Edit) 29/06/2020

Underrated, perhaps the content a tad too important? A true, true story. Rosamund Pike utterly convincing as insanely courageous war correspondent, Marie Colvin, urged on by her self-serving boss to risk her liife to tell the appalling truth about man-made war so often glorified in macho Hollywood tripe. And upon which the UK economy depends, subsidised by the British taxpayer, flogging arms to whichever despotic regime will pay the price, . And who suffers most?  surprise, surprise, women and children.

Great acting from her photographer sidekick too.

So many exceptional women's stories remain untold, why?
