'The Post' writer Liz Hannah shows what's possible when women occupy powerful roles in Hollywood

“Never forget: dreams really can come true,” it says, with a link to a trailer for The Post. Yes, that's The Post, as in the movie about Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. Hannah wrote the film's screenplay, her first feature script, with help from Spotlight writer Josh Singer. And now, the 32-year-old who had only planned to write a spec script to help attain an agent, is in Oscar contention and has become the embodiment of what is possible when women are in positions of power in the movie industry.
