“Will you go on the record?”
Harvey Weinstein’s abuses were an open secret in Hollywood for years, covered up and excused away by a laissez-faire industry attitude that prioritized profit and power over justice, safety and positive change. Director Maria Schrader’s new drama She Said chronicles the dogged investigation by two New York Times reporters, Megan Twohey (Carey Mulligan) and Jodi Kantor (Zoe Kazan), into the lengthy allegations. Their work and resulting breakthrough report helped to propel the #MeToo movement into the mainstream and helped give voice to the many victims of Weinstein and of the pervasive and toxic Hollywood culture of harassment and assault.
Based on the New York Times bestseller, She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement, the film co-stars Patricia Clarkson, Andre Braugher, Jennifer Ehle, and Samantha Morton in supporting roles, with Ashley Judd playing herself.
