She Said

There have been many great newspaper movies. The genre is perfect for film. My favorites are “His Girl Friday”, “All the President’s Men”, “Spotlight” and “Five Star Final”. Add to that list “She Said” which is the story of how the scandalous, misogonystic behavior of Harvey Weinstein was investigated and uncovered. Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan star as the two New York Times reporters who were blocked at every turn by a system that protects and enables the offender. Even with threats against them and the Times they persisted. Consequently the Me Too movement was started. Great acting; great writing and very suspenseful. I’m not sure if I would rate it as high as “Spotlight”, but it’s right up there.
