(2022) (Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kazan) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: New York Times reporters begin investigating reports of sexual crimes and improprieties by a famous Hollywood producer and studio head.
Following their story by Megan Twohey (CAREY MULLIGAN) on allegations of impropriety against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, the New York Times decides to cast a wider net looking for related workplace behavior across the country. Investigative reporter Jodi Kantor (ZOE KAZAN) ends up focusing on Miramax head honcho and movie producer Harvey Weinstein (MIKE HOUSTON) with actress Ashley Judd (ASHLEY JUDD) giving her the low-down on him and his bad behavior toward her and other women in the past.
With Megan joining her investigation, the two women start digging into the various allegations -- with executive editor Dean Baquet (ANDRE BRAUGHER) and editor Rebecca Corbett (PATRICIA CLARKSON) overseeing their work -- and uncover various victims, all of whom are reluctant to provide details or are under a gag order based on a past settlement with Weinstein.
As they continue with their reporting, the women discover the breadth of both victims and the systemic efforts to silence them.
