Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post's Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks). Racing to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents, the two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers - and their freedom - to help bring long-buried truths to light.

Julien Temple continues to his ongoing cinematic exploration of music with a new film based on the popular stage show by Madness frontman Suggs.
Now 55, Graham McPherson (aka Suggs) has been the lead singer of Madness since 1977, helping the group to 15 UK Top 10 hits before they broke up in 1986. His solo career, which was launched in the wake of Madness’s reunion in 1992, led to the singles Cecilia and Camden Town and he has also done stints as a TV presenter, radio DJ and author. All of this makes him a fascinating subject and the film will draw on the on stage show’s use of speech, stand up and excerpts of songs by Madness (and their contemporaries).
But Temple will go beyond that with his movie by combining live performance and archive clips with dramatised scenes from McPherson’s life to tell his story of struggling to find meaning in his life in his 50’s. The film is shooting in Hoxton, London and will be screened next year.
