SHE SAID

CREATE | MIND THE GAP | US CINEMA

US 2022, 135 min, Director: Maria Schrader

A poignant testament to the power of investigative journalism, She Said captures the journey of New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor (Zoe Kazan) and Megan Twohey (Carey Mulligan) as they uncover harrowing accounts of sexual harassment and assault perpetrated by Harvey Weinstein—and the powerful Hollywood machine that enabled and protected him for decades. Based on the book by Kantor and Twohey, this heart-racing and emotional drama highlights the journalists’ unflinching tenacity in the face of institutional barriers and resistance, brilliantly captured with nuance and complexity by Kazan and Mulligan. Aided by an exceptional ensemble cast, acclaimed director Maria Schrader spotlights the remarkable courage of the women who came forward as well as those who helped bring their stories to light. This game-changing story marked a momentous shift in Hollywood and beyond, and serves as a reminder of the ever-relevant impact and importance of uncovering the truth and amplifying otherwise silenced voices. —Celeste Wong
