New York Times Critics' Pick

Two-time Academy Award® nominee Carey Mulligan (PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN, AN EDUCATION) and Zoe Kazan (THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA, THE BIG SICK) star as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who together broke one of the most important stories in a generation— a story that shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood and altered American culture forever.

A testament to the power of investigative journalism, SHE SAID details the journey of reporters and editors engaged in the unrelenting pursuit of the truth and highlights the courage of survivors and witnesses who chose to come forward to stop a serial predator in his tracks. Together, their commitment and fortitude sparked a national conversation, helped propel the #MeToo movement, and fueled a reckoning of the system that had enabled him.

SHE SAID is directed by Emmy winner Maria Schrader (UNORTHODOX limited series) from a screenplay by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, screenwriter of the Oscar® winning film IDA.


“While forged in the mold of other films about investigative reporting, like SPOTLIGHT, ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN and THE POST, SHE SAID privileges female experience. It follows its journalists home more extensively than those earlier films did, accentuating their identities as women and mothers. This choice helps explain the sacrifices these journalists made and the reputational risks they took to report this story. It argues that a reporter’s private life and personhood might animate her work without compromising her ethics.” Alexis Soloski. A New York Times Critic's Pick!
