She Said

128' - 2022 - Drama - Dialogue: English
Director: Maria Schrader Composer: Nicholas Britell With: Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kazan, Patricia Clarkson, Samantha Morton
A testament to the power of investigative journalism, She Said is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times investigation by Jodi Kantor, Megan Twohey and Rebecca Corbett and the New York Times bestseller She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement.
Closing the 49th Film Fest Gent, She Said is actress-turned-director Maria Schrader’s (Unorthodox) first English-language feature and her second selection for Film Fest Gent, after last year’s I Am Your Man. Starring two-time Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) and Zoe Kazan (The Plot Against America, The Big Sick), the investigative drama details the journey of New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who together broke one of the most important stories in a generation - a story that shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood, altered American culture forever and exposed film mogul Harvey Weinstein’s history of abuse and sexual misconduct against women. She Said follows the reporters and editors engaged in the unrelenting pursuit of the truth and highlights the courage of survivors and witnesses who chose to come forward to stop a serial predator in his tracks. Together, their commitment and fortitude sparked an international conversation, helped propel the #MeToo movement, and fuelled a reckoning of the system that had enabled him.
