She Said (129min, R) 2022 Maria Schrader, director.
Don’t miss a one-time only screening of a searing real-life drama made by and for women – and fans of a free press. Carey Mulligan (Never Let Me Go) and Zoe Kazan (The Big Sick) are New York Times journalists who investigate multiple allegations of sexual abuse by movie producer Harvey Weinstein. The reporters get a tip that actor Rose McGowan and other women have been assaulted by the powerful and respected Weinstein, and they begin the Herculean effort of getting the actors (who fear career death), and Weinstein’s assistants (who fear for their jobs) to reveal their names. A great journalistic thriller that deserves to be up there with Spotlight and All the President’s Men. “She Said feels not just important, but urgent.” – Kimberly Jones, Austin Chronicle.
