Spielberg’s “The Post” will be screened in Lebanon

Last week, sources told 


 that “The Post” by the director Steven Spielberg is

banned from screening in Lebanon

. The movie, which features Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, is a political thriller film about an editor and the United States’ first female publisher who revealed the government’s secrets regarding its involvement in the Vietnam War. However, the Minister of Interior and Municipalities Nouhad Machnouk announced that he allowed this movie to be screened in Lebanese theaters, and he signed the decision as soon as he arrived in Cairo. The Minister stated that “The Post” is about the Vietnam war. The movie has nothing to do with Lebanon or the country’s conflict with Israel. The movie will premiere today.
