What is the plot?

Directed by Emmy Award winner Maria Schrader (Unorthodox), She Said tells the powerful true story of Twohey and Kantor, two New York Times journalists who investigate and expose allegations of sexual assault and abuse in Hollywood. One strange name appears, Harvey Weinstein.

They quickly discover that those who have been affected are reluctant to speak out or have signed agreements that prevent them from doing so. As the journalists gather more and more evidence, they soon realize that the only way to uncover these horrific crimes is for everyone to talk together.

The official Universal Pictures synopsis reads: “Two-time Academy Award nominees Carey Mulligan (A Young Woman of Promise, The Education) and Zoe Kazan (The Plot Against America Limited Series, The Big Sick) star as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi. Together, Kantor broke one of the most important stories of a generation—the story that helped fuel the #MeToo movement, shattered decades of silence around the topic of sexual assault in Hollywood, and changed American culture forever.

Is the movie She Said based on a true story?

She Said is based on the true story of New York Times reporters Twohey and Kant who investigate allegations made against Hollywood producer Weinstein. Their work exposed many allegations and drew media attention to sexual harassment and abuse by high-ranking men.

Their revelations inspired the #MeToo movement and allowed women a safe space to share their stories of abuse. It also helped Weinstein’s victims get justice, with the former multi-millionaire sentenced to 23 years in prison for his crimes in February 2020.

What did Carey Mulligan say about the movie?

In an interview with the Guardian, Mulligan and Kazan reflected on the film and its impact. Mulligan said: “As a woman growing up, you’re armed from a young age against something like this; you realize that you are at risk in certain situations. That’s pretty universal, and I think that’s what people connect to in the film: whether it’s an actor or an assistant, the experiences are so eerily familiar.”

They also touched on the #MeToo movement, adding: “From my very lay perspective, I think that’s what the #MeToo movement has done: it’s enabled conversations and opened up channels of communication.”
