She Said is about the New York Times’s investigation that brought down Harvey Weinstein and which launched the #MeToo movement. It’s an important story for a number of obvious reasons. Myself, I’ll be curious to see if the film is honest about how many well-known people, in both Hollywood and Washington, looked the other way when it came to Weinstein and who only turned on him once it was obvious that his time as a Hollywood and political power broker was over. Today, of course, everyone is quick to mention that they always hated Harvey Weinstein but that didn’t stop those same people from thanking him in their Oscar speeches or accepting his money when they wanted to run for office. A true account of Harvey Weinstein’s crimes will mean calling out a lot of people who, even after all this time, are not normally called out. I hope this movie has the guts to do that.
Here’s the trailer.
