New to our screens is the latest from Steven Spielberg, The Post is based on the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep), and editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers - and their very freedom - to help bring long-buried truths to light.
Continuing is Darkest Hour, a rousing drama from Joe Wright which stars Gary Oldman as the newly-elected British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, who is immediately faced with the decision on whether to negotiate with Nazi Germany or stand his ground.
