She Said 2022

She Said is a 2022 American biographical drama film directed by Maria Schrader and written by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, based on the 2019 book of the same title by reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey. The film stars Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan as Twohey and Kantor, respectively, and follows their New York Times investigation that exposed Harvey Weinstein's history of abuse and sexual misconduct against women. Patricia Clarkson, Andre Braugher, Jennifer Ehle, and Samantha Morton co-star, with Ashley Judd appearing as herself.

She Said 2022

She Said had its world premiere at the 60th New York Film Festival on October 13, 2022, and was released in the United States on November 18, 2022, by Universal Pictures. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the screenplay and the performances of Kazan and Mulligan. It was also named one of the best films of 2022 by the American Film Institute. However, it was a box office flop, grossing $13 million against a production budget of $32 million.[5][6] The film was nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Mulligan and Best Adapted Screenplay for Lenkiewicz at the 76th British Academy Film Awards. It also earned Mulligan a Golden Globe Award nomination and Lenkiewicz a Critics' Choice Award nomination.

Schrader and Lenkiewicz said they wanted the film to be less focused on reenactments of Weinstein's abuse and harassment and more about the women who were silenced.[12] Said Lenkeiwicz, "Although there is such darkness in the story...there is a lot of beauty and light in women finding each other."[12]

In August 2022, Weinstein and his attorneys tried to delay his trial from its October 10, 2022 start date by claiming that the film's marketing and publicity would prejudice any Los Angeles jury against him; Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lisa Lench denied the request.[24]

The film was theatrically released in the United States on November 18, 2022, coinciding with the then on-going Weinstein trial in Los Angeles.[25] It premiered at the 60th New York Film Festival on October 13, 2022,[1] and at the BFI London Film Festival on October 14, 2022.[26] It also screened at the TCL Chinese Theatre during the 2022 AFI Fest on November 4, 2022.[27]

The Hollywood Reporter, which listed the film's debut among the worst-ever for a film playing in over 2,000 theaters and also noting audiences may not want to "re-litigate recent and ongoing scandals," said that films about Hollywood don't tend to play well outside Los Angeles and New York City, citing that the film's top 10 grossing theaters were on the coasts.[33]

That reporting helped inspire countless #MeToo revelations, the departure of other top executives, and systemic changes that have given women more opportunities and more protection in the film industry and in other workplaces as well. Twohey and Kantor wrote a best-selling book about researching the article and persuading the women to go on the record, which is now a movie with Carey Mulligan as Twohey and Zoe Kazan as Kantor. Maria Schrader's "She Said" is a "Spotlight"-style journalism procedural that makes clear how powerful men are enabled and how devastated women are silenced. The title of the film significantly is just half of the dismissive "he said/she said" response to sexual harassment accusations with no witnesses.

This movie correctly depicts the obsession that Harvey Weinstein had with the question of whether Gwyneth Paltrow was a source for and/or a subject of Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey's reporting, but it doesn't ever specify why Weinstein was so fixated on Paltrow specifically. During a September 2019 interview with Terry Gross on the National Public Radio program "Fresh Air," Twohey and Kantor explained the story behind this preoccupation: "So to our surprise, Gwyneth Paltrow had a really powerful story of sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein and of being threatened when her first really important roles were on the line. And early on in the investigation, when almost nobody in Hollywood would talk to us, she did. And she even tried to help us find other women. But she was very scared to go on the record. And it became clear, in the course of the investigation, that Harvey Weinstein was obsessed with the question of whether or not we were speaking to Paltrow. He showed up at a party at her house early. She called us from the bathroom completely panicked. In the sort of series of final confrontations about the story that took place at the New York Times, Weinstein kept hammering us. 'Are you talking to Gwyneth? Is Gwyneth in the story?' And at that point, she was still a totally secret source. And we couldn't figure out why he was so obsessed with something that wasn't even part of the story. The answer only became clear over a course of weeks and months after we broke the story. As more and more Weinstein victims came forward, they said publicly, they told us and they even told Paltrow that what Weinstein had said to them, in the course of harassing or assaulting them, was essentially, 'don't you want what Gwyneth has?' Meaning, he was implying to them that she had slept with him and that this was the bargain of sex to - sex for work, right? If you go along with this, you can have the Oscar, the wealth, the fame, the golden girl status. So essentially, what we --two things happened. First of all, Paltrow was very, very upset to learn this. Not only had she never sexually succumbed to Weinstein, but she was so horrified to find out that she had been used, essentially, as a tool of predation. She spent a long time on the phone in the fall of 2017 with other Weinstein victims coming to terms with the way he had used her and with feeling like she had somehow been used as an accessory in this. But then the other thing we finally realized is that this was probably why he had been so obsessed with whether or not we were talking to Paltrow--because as soon as other women heard Paltrow's story and heard that she had never given in to him and that she had refused him, then they would understand so much more about the way his scheme worked and that it would all fall apart, in a sense."

The timing and circumstances surrounding the theatrical release of this film in November 2022 are very interesting and controversial. At the time Harvey Weinstein was in L.A facing more charges of sexual assault (having already been sentenced to 23 years' imprisonment in New York in 2020). Although it is likely Weinstein will die behind bars the new charges could add another 140 years, thereby effectively destroying any chance of parole. However, posters and advertising for this film have been spotted close to the court on L.A. where the case is being heard. Weinstein's lawyers have argued that the jury could be influenced by this and even the Judge told the jury to not watch the film or any trailers for it, as it may sway their opinion of Weinstein, even though the story relates to the circumstances that first brought him to trial in 2020. Whether the release of this film at the time of the second trial is a coincidence (filmed in the latter half of 2021) or not is debatable.

In a 2022 interview, Maria Schrader commented on Ashley Judd's appearance in the film: "Who would you approach BUT Ashley Judd since she was so incredibly important to get this article out in the world? In the movie, it's a climax, right? We all know after she called Jodi, they're not stoppable any longer. Ashley, you know, decided to tell her own story. Ashley Judd is performing Ashley Judd... It's an incredible empowerment for the movie and I'm so grateful that she did that."

According to Deadline in November 2022, though the film was heavily promoted, it only took in $2.27 million in 2,022 theaters in its opening weekend. That's less than half of the already minimal $5-6 million previously predicted before its release. The film's budget was $32 million.

She Said is one of the quietest yet most critically-acclaimed films of the 2022-2023 awards season. The film tells the true story of the New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor as they investigated and brought to light the decades of sexual abuse and misconduct by Harvey Weinstein, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood.

Maria Schrader's 2022 biographical drama film, She Said, is based on the 2019 book by Kantor and Twohey, which is also titled She Said. This particular film follows the two reporters as they try their very best at tracking down the case and exposing Weinstein's abusive acts. It is definitely one film that is filled with a load of information and one that reflects on a crucial event of the 21st Century. The question is, how accurate is this film? Does it over-dramatize the actual events or does it perfectly capture the real occurrences? In a nutshell, the film is very much a reflection of what happened in real life.
