By now, everyone knows about the sordid and horrific details surrounding the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein - how for many years he used his power and position to bully and abuse countless women in the film industry. But someone had to expose his abuses and uncover the truth, and the 2022 film She Said tells this real life story - focusing on two New York Times reporters, Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, played by Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan.

It is told in an admirably straightforward and no-nonsense way by director Maria Schrader (and adapted by Rebecca Lenkiewicz from the journalists’ own book). It doesn’t glamourise the work of Twohey and Kantor - this is in no way an ‘action movie’ - but rather it shows the painstaking work they had to undertake and (crucially) the trust they had to build with Weinstein’s victims.

In the Guardian, Wendy Ide wrote: “Both Mulligan and Kazan are excellent, but equally impressive are a series of supporting turns from Samantha Morton, Jennifer Ehle and – playing herself in a wrenching scene – Ashley Judd. Schrader’s sensitive, unshowy approach to the directing choices is a smart decision; this is a film that is respectful of and in service to the stories of the women.”
