Feature: Before ‘She Said,’ 5 times Hollywood told the stories of the #MeToo era
This fall marks five years since the New York Times and the New Yorker released explosive reporting on allegations of sexual misconduct by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, who is now back in a Los Angeles court on new charges.
The case galvanized the #MeToo movement, inspiring women around the world to speak out on their own experiences of sexual abuse and harassment. In Weinstein’s wake, similar allegations brought down other entertainment icons, like Roger Ailes and Matt Lauer.
Storytellers took note.
“She Said,” premiering Friday, Nov. 18, brings the Weinstein investigation to the silver screen, with Zoe Kazan and Carey Mulligan starring as New York Times journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey for director Maria Schrader (“Unorthodox”).
Here are five other films and series, currently available to stream, inspired by aspects of #MeToo and some of its highest-profile cases.
