Video Interview: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks & Steven Spielberg on The Post

With Steven Spielberg’s "The Post,” Meryl Streep now counts a record 21st Oscar nomination as Best Actress. She plays Katharine Graham, the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, the Washington Post. The also Best Picture-nominee details the time under her watch when the paper raced to expose the Pentagon Papers, a massive cover up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four US presidents, and preceded the paper's famous expose of the Nixon presidency with the Watergate scandal. 

In this exclusive video interview, Streep, Spielberg and Tom Hanks (who plays legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee) talk with film journalist Katherine Tulich about the rush to make the film and its relevancy in today's political climate.
