The story of two investigative journalists who brought on the exposure of Harvey Weinstein is hitting the big screen in 2022 with the arrival of Maria Schrader’s movie, She Said. The film, which is adapted from the book by Pulitzer winners Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, zooms in on their journey while investigating Weinstein’s history of abuse in Hollywood, along with the resulting growth of the #MeToo movement (a term coined by activist Tarana Burke).
If you’re interested in learning more about this film, which is predicted to turn heads, here’s your guide to She Said.
What is the She Said movie about?
As mentioned, it’s the story of Kantor and Twohey’s investigation into the culture of buried assaults in Hollywood and Weinstein’s eventual exposure. The synopsis for the film reads as follows:
Two-time Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman, An Education) and Zoe Kazan (The Plot Against America limited series, The Big Sick) star as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who together broke one of the most important stories in a generation–a story that helped propel the #Metoo movement, shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood and altered American culture forever.
Who is in the cast?
As we just touched on, the cast of She Said is pretty stacked. The phenomenal Carey Mulligan stars as Megan Twohey and Zoe Kazan stars as Jodi Kantor. Joining them is Patricia Clarkson as Rebecca Corbett, Andre Braugher as Dean Baquet, Samantha Morton as Zelda Perkins, Keilly McQuail as the voice of Rose McGowan, and Maren Lord as Molly Corbett – among others.
