Bombshell Rated 15

Bombshell

Dir. Jay Roach. USA, 2019. 1h 49m. Starring Margot Robbie, Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Morrison, Alice Eve, Tricia Helfer, Kate McKinnon, John Lithgow.

When journalist Gretchen Carlson accused the Fox News CEO of sexual harassment, she set off a chain of events which would lead to many more women stepping forward to accuse him of similar crimes. A vibrant account of an important #MeToo moment centred around three brilliant central performances – earning Oscar nominations for both Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie.

'Bombshell is a hard and complicated story to tell, but its message is clear: no woman is free from the patriarchy, even if she doesn't believe in it.’ ★★★★ Clarisse Loughery, The Independent

‘One of the most compelling stories of the #MeToo movement is told unflinchingly, empathetically and authentically, with Charlize Theron completely nailing the knotty character of Megyn Kelly.’ ★★★★ Terri White, Empire Magazine
