The Post (Released: January 12, 2018)

The Post – Rate 6/10

When viewing The Post, I had no previous knowledge of the history or issues on which the film was based. Overall, the story was clear enough that a person who had no idea of this historic moment could actually understand what was going on. However, when going in knowing Steven Spielberg directed this piece and Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks were co-stars, one would think this would be an epic.

While watching it, I found that they had a good chemistry and reciprocated off one another during their scenes. Likewise, I felt that the fast pace in which Steven carried the film kept the audience on their toes enough to keep them from falling asleep. Someone in their 20s, like me, might not know these characters are based off of real people. It could have helped knowing a little more about this moment in history and reading up about these people before going in. This would have given me a deeper respect and better perspective for the overall story. As I said though, the plot and pace of the film helped keep the audience engaged. I found that Streep’s character development throughout the film created a great arc. From being shadowed by powerful men, disrespected and treated less than, she grew throughout the film. At the climax of the story Streep’s character made a beautiful outbreak. In the end I rated this 6/10 because of the few times I felt the story lagged and my wish to know more before I came to see it. The fast pace of the film itself kept the story hyped and growing which lead to developing characters and change that I found quite enjoyable.

 

Keep it real,

P.S. Period pieces are always a weakness of mine.
