AroView: Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) and Zoe Kazan (The Big Sick) star in this excellent dramatisation of the true story of New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who tenaciously empowered sex abuse victims to speak out against high-powered film producer Harvey Weinstein.
A story that helped ignite the #metoo movement, the film celebrates the bravery of the actual women who had the courage to come forward, especially that of Ashley Judd, who makes a crucial and moving appearance.
“That Harvey Weinstein’s downfall was the product of diligent reporting, dogged persistence, and the resilience of a few brave souls is essential to remember. In Maria Schrader’s artful and incendiary She Said, we’re reminded of something else that makes for one hell of a movie: It was women who did it.” ~Kate Erbland, IndieWire
“Delivers on the dopamine hits of a journalism movie: proficient pace (the film runs just over two hours but feels shorter), tactile work, the thrill of pavement pounded into revelation.” ~Adrian Horton, The Guardian
