“ They are among the many women who will go down in history for trailblazing the way into a world with protections for women in the workplace and out in the world. ”
Anger, rage, shame, shock, despair, hopelessness, pride, hope, courage and finally triumph. The emotional rollercoaster this movie takes us on is staggering but it just might be the most important film of this generation.
I never fully understood the Meghan Kelly story, I just knew her name. This film illuminates her journey and the crusade she and her colleagues were forced to go on. We all need to be grateful for her and hercolleagues' bravery for speaking out about their experience with sexual harassment. They are among the many women who will go down in history for trailblazing the way into a world with protections for women in the workplace and out in the world.
This is the first film to address the 2016 elections and everything happening in the pre-Trump/#MeToo/Time’s Up era. I almost forgot how much we have grown and evolved in the past 3 years, even if we still have a long way to go. There are so many cringe worthy moments highlighting the misogynistic world we live(d) in which is incredibly important for men and women but, mostly men to stare in the face. They show every which way a woman can and does feel harassed or violated at work and the ways she’s suppressed when she tries to speak up for herself. It's very uncomfortable at times (I've never heard a packed theatre totally silent until now) which gives the painful moments the proper severity they deserve.
Kate McKinnon is a revelation! She is a star full of talent beyond her years and I hope this film earns her more projects that involve her humor and her dramatic skills. John Lithgow is better than ever! If he doesn’t earn a Globe for this role something is wrong with the academy. Margot Robbie is a treasure and rightfully deserves the Golden Globe nom. Allison Janey's cameo is great and accompanied by a few other super stars making quick appearances as well. Hair/Makeup should win all the awards..its perfection; a great example of special effects makeup assisting performances, not over-shadowing them.
This movie should be a requirement for participating members of our society. It’s an important perspective for everyone to understand in order to make real change for our children’s futures. See it and see it again.
