A searing look at a day in the life of an assistant to a powerful executive. As Jane follows her daily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the insidious abuse that threatens every aspect of her position.
Drama - This is a talky independent drama inspired by, but not explicitly about, the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal. While there is a very briefly seen visual of sex, there is a lot of talk, both implicit and explicit, about the issue. That plus some language make the film not for kids. The young lead, Julia Garner, is the most familiar face in the cast.
Roger EbertFull Review Excellent Green maintains strict control over how she tells the story, and it's really something to behold. By imposing limit - through the narrow point of view, through never succumbing to the impulse to explain or underline or even show - Green reveals herself to be a narrative filmmaker of considerable power.
NY PostFull Review Good By training her lens on a grind of a job demanding near-invisibility, Green highlights the systematic verbal abuse these young (usually) women endure - as well as the hidden power of what they see and know.
Rolling StoneFull Review Very Good Green's slow-burn style might not spell box-office windfall in a cinema era of short attention spans, but her artistry is indisputable. In detailing Jane's soul-crushing daily routine, Green allows us to share the agony of her petrified complicity in the predatory contagion at its core.
