Anxious to see the Golden Globe-nominated film "The Post," starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep?

The movie's limited release starts Friday, Jan. 5 at The Jacob Burns Film Center (JBFC)  in Pleasantville.

The movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, a JBFC Board Member, was filmed in White Plains and at SUNY Purchase, among other venues, and is based on true events about a cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents and pushed the country's first female newspaper publisher to join an unprecedented battle between journalist and government.

Spielberg, in fact, recently attended a private screening of the movie in Pleasantville followed by a Q&A with JBFC Board President and long-time friend Janet Maslin. The "classified" screening on the declassified documents (Pentagon Papers) was closed to the public and media but included special guest attendee President Bill Clinton and Westchester County Executive George Latimer.
