She Said (2022). She Said: Directed by Maria Schrader. With Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kazan, Patricia Clarkson, Andre Braugher. New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor break one of the most important stories in a generation – a story that helped ignite a movement and shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood.

“A solid if uninspired film about the two New York Times journalists who broke the Harvey Weinstein scandal and ushered in the MeToo movement.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTaking a cue from films like u0026quot;All the Presidentu0026#39;s Menu0026quot; and u0026quot;Spotlight,u0026quot; the film goes for sober realism rather than glamorized excitement, and it focuses on the dogged and often frustrating details around trying to gather together the pieces of a story worth publishing. Itu0026#39;s not as gripping as either of those movies, though, and Iu0026#39;m not sure why. Itu0026#39;s got all the ingredients, but somethingu0026#39;s just missing. Itu0026#39;s almost restrained to a fault.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCarey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan are excellent as the two journalists, and I always enjoy Patricia Clarkson. But Samantha Morton, who I havenu0026#39;t seen in forever, comes out of nowhere to deliver the filmu0026#39;s most memorable performance in what amounts to a cameo. Itu0026#39;s a strong actress who can be on screen for no more than five minutes or so yet leave you remembering nothing but her. Unfortunately, thatu0026#39;s also an indication that movie around her wasnu0026#39;t very memorable.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGrade: B+”
