She Said: Release Date, Trailer, Plot and Latest News
Despite Weinstein’s decades-long plan to pay off the women he had raped, the New York Times managed to break the story. It was for this article that The New York Times was awarded the Pulitzer Prize gold medal in 2018 for public service. When Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey stepped up to lead the inquiry, this article would not have been possible. After nearly five years, Universal Pictures is releasing She Said, which tells the extraordinary narrative of the exposé
Filmmaker Maria Schrader (who won an Emmy in 2020 for her Netflix film Unorthodox) will helm the next American drama, which is set to premiere in 2019. As Kantor and Twohey’s work on the Weinstein probe progresses, She Said follows their personal and professional lives. While Weinstein’s alleged victims were receiving death threats for speaking up, these two ladies persevered in their efforts for them to go public with their stories.
She Said: Plot
As Kantor and Twohey documented in October 2017, Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual harassment, intimidation, assault, and rape of at least thirty women throughout the course of his career in Hollywood. He had abused women while in his role as a film producer, and he would forced them to keep quiet about their ordeals. He has been accused of sexual harassment and/or rape by more than 80 women. In May of this year, he was arrested. He was convicted of rape and a criminal sexual act between February and March 2020 and sentenced to 23 years in jail.
She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement was released by Penguin Press on September 10, 2019. Harvey Weinstein’s attempts to pay off the women he had sexually abused were revealed in the report written by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey. According to She Said’s source material, the reporters faced many difficulties while conducting their investigation. It was difficult to come up with a clear definition of sexual harassment and to persuade women who had been coerced into silence to come forward with their experiences. The gatekeepers in Hollywood also posed a significant hurdle to Kantor and Twohey’s inquiry, making it difficult or impossible at times. Destabilizing systems like those that shelter predators like Harvey Weinstein is the emphasis of the book’s last chapter.
She Said: Trailer
An insider’s view of the New York Times headquarters, where reporters are tasked with investigating workplace sexual harassment, is provided to viewers in She Said. As soon as Jodi Kantor steps foot in Hollywood, she realises that the industry is riddled with corruption. She reaches out to Megan Twohey as she interviews women but they refuse to go on the record and therefore help expose Harvey Weinstein. To help the women who have been silenced by Weinstein, Kantor and Twohey have teamed together. Through this, they are able to bring down the system that protects and perpetuates abuse by using all of their skills, guts, and resources. While all this is going on, Weinstein’s crew is pushing strings to keep the news under wraps.
She Said: Release Date
On November 18, 2022, She Said will be released in theatres.
