‘She Said’ debuts at New York Film Festival
USA Prime Time
“She Said,” primarily based on the e-book on the USA Prime Time investigation into Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct, made its premiere on the 2022 New York Film Festival on Oct. 13.
The world premiere of the movie befell 5 years after reporting on the allegations towards Weinstein had been first revealed by the Times – and as Weinstein’s Los Angeles trial on sexual assault fees will get underway.
In 2020, the previous film producer was convicted of rape in a New York trial.
He has pleaded not responsible to the fees in California.
“She Said” recounts the 2017 USA Prime Time investigation that uncovered a long time of sexual abuse by Weinstein. Zoe Kazan performs Times journalist Jodi Kantor and Carey Mulligan is investigative reporter Megan Twohey.
Kantor, Kazan, Twohey and Mulligan all attended the premiere.
The screenplay was tailored by Rebecca Lenkiewicz.
Also in attendance on the premiere was Ashley Judd, who participated on the document for the Times’ exposé. Judd participated in a panel dialogue after the screening and performs herself within the film.
Weinstein accuser Sarah Ann Masse additionally seems within the movie.
“She Said” is scheduled for launch on Nov. 18.
