Bombshell – Drama
Category – Movie
Content – Look everyone – I am not a political person and admit I don’y watch the news very much. So I didn’t really know about the harassment scandal with Fox News before watching this film. But boy do I know now! Women, led by Gretchen Carlson and eventually Megyn Kelly, file a harassment lawsuit against Roger Ailes personally. They did not sue Fox News. Since Roger Ailes was the head of Fox News, this lawsuit took the world by storm! Everyone is shocked, and no one more than his wife when he lost. This movie takes you on these women’s horrifying accounts of harassment. It is emotional and compelling. And unfortunately something that happens in the work place all around the country! What you take away from this film is No matter what, speak up. This scores a 8 out of 10.
Acting – When the movie started, I didn’t see Charlize Theron. Only Megyn Kelly. She looked and talked like her; it was superb! Her acting is nothing short of brilliant, I can see why she is being Nominated. Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie are excellent as well! And John Lithgow, WOW! What a performance from him as Roger Ailes! Even Malcolm McDowell playing Rupert Murdoch is great!!! Scores a 9 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 49 mins. I think this was perfect, not too long and not too short. It flows very well! This gets a 8 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for Bombshell – 25 out of 30
Recommended Watch – Definitely! The acting is fantastic and you learn about the ladies’ struggle! Good movie!!!
