It was only a matter of time before Hollywood dipped its toes into its own pond.
Based on the New York Times Pulitzer investigation, Maria Schrader’s She Said follows two Times reporters as they work to unearth a mountain of misconduct in one of the most exclusive circles in the world: Hollywood.
Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan star as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, women working tirelessly to break open one of the most important stories of their generation. But with decades of silence and society’s historical outlook on sexual assault, getting victims to speak on the record is no easy task.
Part investigative thriller, part political drama, the Rebecca Lenkiewicz-penned film looks primed for an award-season run. It hits theaters on November 18.
About Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
