It’s a battle between the press and the government, and every newspaper wants to report the latest news first. Kay Graham is doing everything she can to uphold her dead husband’s company but it’s not easy to be the country’s first female newspaper publisher.
I didn’t know much about this movie before I watched it but I thought that if both Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep were in this movie, it must be great. Oh yeah I might have been a tad wrong. I’m really starting to see how true story movies are not my thing at all. If you’ve been following me for a while you might be aware that I’m not really fond of true story movies and Oscar nominated movies. I can say that I have not improved because this movie was so freaking boring.
To me, the characters were pretty dull but I really liked Meryl Streep’s character Kay Graham most of the time but the other characters didn’t really interest me. Now the fact that men thought a woman couldn’t be their boss is just absurd, and you know the fact that it’s based on a true story makes it worse because it shows how oppressed one can be at work just because one is a certain gender.
When it comes to the story in general I guess it was pretty interesting sometimes, well almost never but it had its moments. I just didn’t think this was a very interesting or enjoyable movie to watch and it went in a very slow pace which was just quite boring. I am unfortunately not going to watch this movie again but I really do hope some of you enjoyed it more.
My rating: 4/10
