1979's Best Picture winner, Kramer vs. Kramer, gets a bad rap for being too sad. It's sad. But it isn't sad-sad. You get my meaning. It's a strong Best Picture winner and features a great performance from Dustin Hoffman.
The dream team of director Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan), Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, every movie your Dad likes), and Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady, every movie your Mom likes) delivers a true-to-life story of freedom of the press against a vindictive and corrupt government as well as a female empowerment tale with The Post. The supporting cast is ridiculously good and Streep earns her 21st Academy Award nomination!
