Two-time Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan (‘Promising Young Woman’, ‘An Education’) and Zoe Kazan (miniseries ‘The Plot Against America’, ‘The Big Sick’) play Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, the two New York Times journalists who broke one of the most important stories of a generation—the Harvey Weinstein rape scandal. It was a story that was much more than just partly responsible for the birth of the #MeToo movement, which broke a decades-long silence about sexual abuse in Hollywood and changed American culture forever. The film is directed by Emmy winner Maria Schrader (miniseries ‘Unorthodox’) from a screenplay by Oscar-winner Rebecca Lenkiewicz (‘Ida’).
‘That 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… Schrader and her team cleverly weave in a variety of storytelling conceits to paint a complex picture, from assorted flashbacks to simply moving through various locations while key audio is played… It’s immersive and skilled storytelling.’—Kate Erbland, IndieWire
