Dog’s Movie House: “She Said” Riveting Film In The Vein Of “All The President’s Men” And “Spotlight!”
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at “She Said,” a powerful film about the two New York Times reporters who broke the scandal involving Harvey Weinstein back in 2017. The tale centers on Megan Twohey (Carey Mulligan) and Jodi Cantor (Zoe Kazan) two reporters for the New York Times who team up to do an investigative piece on the harassment culture in Hollywood. After receiving a few tips and doing a little digging, they quick zoom in on Weinstein, who at the time was one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood. What they discover is that Weinstein is a symptom of a huge Hollywood machine that enables powerful producers (mostly white and male) to behave as if they are above the law. Twohey and Cantor must navigate the labyrinth of non-disclosure agreements, financial settlements, and the culture of bullying and blacklisting to get to the truth, finding out first hand what it’s like to go up against the Hollywood machine.
