The takedown of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was something that rocked the industry and felt like a long time coming. The new film, She Said, takes an investigative eye into how that happened. It’s based on the book of the same name written by New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor (Kazan) and Megan Twohey (Mulligan) who led the charge in reporting this story. The film picks up with Megan Twohey finishing a piece on the allegations made against President Donald Trump only to find that voters weren’t at all swayed by the victims’ statements. Jodi Kantor decides to explore systemic sexism in Hollywood after Rose McGowan’s bombshell allegations against Weinstein. Only after Bill O’Reilly was fired at Fox News for similar allegations, did Kantor believe something could happen to Weinstein. She partners with Twohey to interview actresses and former employees at Weinstein’s company Miramax to learn the truth of what happened with their former boss.
