Edmunds says that South Africans need to go see the movie to get a sense of the tension that took place in the news rooms when the Gupta emails landed. She adds that her favourite scene is when an anonymous shoe box gets dropped off at the Washington Post. Edmunds says that the excitement in the room was amazing,

Steven Spielberg made this movie in 9 months says Edmunds. She adds that she’s a huge Meryl Streep,Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg fan.

One of the things Streep does is show us how her character builds her confidence in rooms of men.
