22 February Russian screens comes a new film Steven Spielberg "Secret dossier" with Tom Hanks Meryl Streep in the lead roles.

A story about how the first woman publisher of The Washington Post Katherine Graham (Meryl Streep) and editor-Ben Bradley (Tom Hanks) come to race "The New York Times" the right to publish classified information about the Vietnam war, hiding more than 30 years, looks interesting. Movie trailer and not at all promises action-Packed Thriller. However, the first impression is deceptive, and during the session my hopes crashed on the reef.

"Secret dossier" — not a bad movie, but a completely "fresh". Before the plot, though a little will move from the place will have to wait — will not less than 40-50 min. To the same the picture fool You to date, showing the fighting in Vietnam, a documentary chronicling and showing the main characters.

the Plot, as if from under pressure, moving forward, and when it comes time to accelerate, not do this. And this is discouraging. You expect the intensity of emotions, because the events provide such an opportunity (the characters Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks become the course of the film on the way the White house), but instead it looks too grandly and politely, as during the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Characters are not only.. Dialogues absolutely not doing my task, half of them bear any burden for the development of the plot. The character Meryl Streep portrayed as unsure imagine a naive woman in hour needs to be reborn and to make a very important choice and placing on map reputation, freedom and even life. However, in this does not believe. Her decision to publish the secret data is not looks like sacrifice for the freedom of speech, but rather as a desire to show not believe it is strong men that it is also not fingers do.

The only interesting character seems Ben Bradley is performed by Tom Hanks, which of the hunter news sensationalism becomes Hof the person, ceasing to blindly believe their patrons, disappointed in policy of the White house and aware of the looming problem of censorship of the media. In fact, he only understands that received secret data is not just an opportunity to increase sales — the struggle for free speech principle. And his determination, faith in the right it helps to make the right choice Catherine Graham in the final.

The "secret dossier" is very similar to the film "In the spotlight" (2015), who in his time took 2  the"Oscar" in the nominations "Best film" and"Best screenplay". He also raises issues of independence of media and freedom of speech, only to cope with this is much more interesting. New Spielberg film does it completely mundane tone, from reassuring us that in the end will be a happy ending, and because 2 hours the hall seem to have fallen out of life.

The film has caused my interest just because was nominated an Oscar. Neither the trailer nor the star of the trust is not called, although the technical side of any claims.

Political picture of Spielberg with getting worse. I remember annoying the nonsense promotion "Spy bridge" with same Tom Hanks. The plot of the paintings is becoming a very important part. Very sorry that Steven Spielberg have to take the time and talent such.

I was frankly boring to watch a typical construction of events. Remember the typical character of the hippies of the office hair "a La '60s". In the stage trip on the truck I barely had time about him to think twice before he appeared on the driver's seat.

I really liked the story a Kennedy wife. Its murder, we saw each view, but here's the events right after I have ever met.

The "secret dossier" — action-Packed dramatic Thriller based on real events, from one of the most iconic and influential Directors of the modern film industry Steven Spielberg, tells the story of courageous journalists of "The New York Times" and"The Washington Post" declassified documents of the Pentagon about the Vietnam war, not afraid to risk their reputation, social status, freedom and even life.

In American history was not a few moments when ordinary ordinary citizens had to risk all that they are defending the Constitution and American independence. In March 1971, a reporter from "The New York Times" Neel Sheehan got in your hands access top secret dossier on the 7000 pages, the proceedings of which were prepared for the Minister of defense Robert McNamara in 1967 and was entitled "U.S.-Vietnam relations, 1945-1967: a Study". "The New York Times" published an article on six pages, which instantly evokes strong reaction in the community, because of the article people know about in-line conversations of presidents of the United States, command of the Pentagon and CIA analysts. The materials, which in consequence became known as the "Pentagon Papers", revealed the unpleasant truth — the facts of the carnage in Viet Nam, carefully hiding the governments of the four presidents — Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson. "The Pentagon papers" confirmed that the presidents knew about the defeat of their country, so they didn't tell his people the whole truth about that terrible war in Viet Nam, holding back the expansion of military action only not become the history of their country that is the President, which was a lost war. In other words, the documents opened a black page in American history.

Steven Spielberg is an amazing Director. It seems that there is no story it would not able to show interesting for the viewer on the screen. It can be called the diverse Director, because its films nobody is able to remain indifferent. What he has not been removed, whether the film is about the genocide of the Jewish people in the time of the Second world war or a tense Thriller about a shark and priklyuchencheskie movies for the whole family, it always good delves into the history of their projects, bringing to the screen the most realistic characters.

"Secret file" is not just a film about the journalists that the film is about working journalism. Work in printing, extraction of information, the study of 4000 pages from "the Pentagon Papers" for one night, got into characters, for immediate release on the following morning - all this perfectly describes and conveys the atmosphere of the work of journalists.

After  "New York Times" published an issue with the articles on the secret dossier, the Supreme court US on order of the White House, starts a court case against the newspaper, forbidding its further publication related to  the"Pentagon Papers", blaming the violation of the law. After this incident, no one newspaper is no longer written a line about dossier, fearing that they suffer the fate of their peers. Afraid of everything, except journalists of  The Washington Post, a small family newspaper, which got his hands on copies of those most of the documents. Not looking at risk and threat to their lives and the reputation of the newspaper, they are allowed in the print edition of your newspaper in which was an article about "the Pentagon Papers".

In the same morning seized printing brought charges against The Washington Post. Sparks, bringing The Times and The Post have enough to fire. It turned out that copies of secret documents got all major Newspapers in new York, but fearing the consequences, decided not to publish them, but after the courage of their colleagues, other publications do not able to stand in the side, joining the struggle true.

One of the main roles in the new film Spielberg played it a good friend and wonderful actor That Hanks. The character Hanks, Ben Bradley — fighter the truth and justice, the excellent Manager of the newspaper, trying to make a small family of rag major publication. Hanks, bad play is not able, therefore, its character is so alive not only due to the well written script, but and wonderful game Hanks that is not is lost beside the excellent Meryl Streep.

"The press should be the government, and not the rulers". Exactly these words describe the picture Spielberg. The "secret dossier" — a bit of chamber history on the struggle for the truth and defending the Constitution of the country from breaking in their own interests its rulers.
