Pentagon Papers ou Le Post au Québec (The Post) est un film historique américain réalisé par Steven Spielberg, sorti en 2017.

Le film est inspiré de faits authentiques : les Pentagon Papers, l'un des premiers scoops de l'histoire du journalisme américain au début des années 1970. Cette expression désigne notamment le document United States-Vietnam Relations, 1945-1967: A Study Prepared by the Department of Defense (« Relations entre les États-Unis et le Viêt Nam, 1945-1967 : une étude préparée par le département de la Défense »), soit plus de 7 000 pages top secret qui dévoilent l'implication politique et militaire des États-Unis dans la guerre du Viêt Nam de 1955 à 1975.

Le film est dédié à la réalisatrice Nora Ephron, décédée en 2012.

Synopsis

En 1965, l'analyste Daniel Ellsberg se rend sur le front de la guerre du Viêt Nam pour y observer l'avancement des troupes américaines, pour le compte du secrétaire à la Défense, Robert McNamara. En 1971, Daniel Ellsberg travaille désormais pour RAND Corporation. Il décide de photocopier secrètement des rapports sur le progrès du conflit au Viêt Nam, depuis la présidence de Harry S. Truman à 1967, révélant le double discours des différentes administrations américaines sur les chances de victoire des États-Unis au Vietnam. Les gouvernements successifs ont ainsi caché au peuple américain la réalité de l'enlisement du conflit. Daniel Ellsberg divulgue alors des informations au New York Times. Le journal est cependant mis en garde par la justice, sous la pression du président Richard Nixon, sur les conséquences de la publication d'informations nationales classées secrètes. D'abord sur la touche, le Washington Post va récupérer le scoop grâce à la motivation de son rédacteur en chef, Benjamin Bradlee. Ce dernier va inciter la directrice du journal, Katharine Graham, à publier les fameux Pentagon Papers. Mais cette dernière doit aussi faire face à son conseil d'administration et à la future entrée en bourse de son journal. Le film s'achève sur l'arrêt de la Cour Suprême New York Times Co. v. United States, dans lequel les équipes du Washington Post s'alignent avec celles du New York Times parmi les parties convoquées, ce qui ouvre la voie sur la scène finale, montrant le Watergate de nuit, théâtre du scandale du Watergate, démarré en 1972 et qui mettra fin à la présidence Nixon en 1974.
