A good movie
" Henry Hackett is the editor of a New York City tabloid. He is a workaholic who loves his job, but the long hours and low pay are leading to discontent. Also, publisher Bernie White faces financial straits, and has hatchetman Alicia Clark, Henry's nemesis, impose unpopular cutbacks. Henry's wife Martha, a hugely pregnant former reporter of his, is fed up because he has so little time for his family. He is therefore considering an offer from Paul Bladden to edit a paper like the New York Tim"

" Showtime- 1hr. 51min. First Viewing The Paper is often at odds with itself tonally, wanting to be both a personal, authentic look at journalists doing their jobs, and a lighthearted, silly relationship dramedy. When it focuses on professionalism, it soars, but falters otherwise. The cast is exceptional though, and carries the movie even in it's weaker stretches. A solid movie (though if you have the choice between this and Michael Keaton's other journalism movie, take Spotlight)."
"The machinations behind the printing press and the kinds of coming and going-ons that take place in and out of the offices in order to make sure that the latest news makes it to the earliest editions. A forgotten Ron Howard production with a quality squad of performances by names such as Robert Duvall, Marissa Tomei, Michael Keaton and Glenn Close. "
