The Post is shown on the next film night at Nunney Village Hall on Friday 8 June, presented by Somerset Moviola and the Nunney Village Hall Committee.
The Post is a 2017 American historical political thriller directed and produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer.
Set in the early 1970s, The Post depicts the true story of attempts by journalists at The Washington Post to publish the Pentagon Papers.
Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks star as the Washington Post’s socialite publisher Katherine Graham and her hard-bitten executive editor Ben Bradlee.
They become locked in a legal battle when the figurative bombshell of the Pentagon Papers lands in their laps, aware that its publication could expose the Nixon administration and undermine national security as war rages in Southeast Asia, potentially endangering further young American lives.
The film was nominated for Best Picture and Best Actress (for Streep) at the 90th Academy Awards, and also received six nominations at the 75th Golden Globe Awards.
The Post has a 12A rating. Films rated 12A are suitable for children aged 12 and over.
But people younger than 12 may see a 12A so long as they are accompanied by an adult. In such circumstances, responsibility for allowing a child under 12 to view lies with the accompanying adult.
The Post is shown at Nunney Village Hall on Friday 8 June at 7.30pm. Door open at 7.00pm. Seats cannot be reserved, so please come early.
Tickets cost £5 in advance at the SPAR shop in Nunney or £6 on the door. Advance booking is highly recommended (the film nights frequently sell out in advance!).
A licensed bar and ice creams will be available. The bar opens at 7pm. The film programme begins at 7.30pm.
