“She Stated” will make its world premiere on the 2022 New York Movie Competition. From Emmy-winning “Unorthodox” helmer Maria Schrader, the drama revisits how New York Instances reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey broke the 2017 Harvey Weinstein story that rocked Hollywood and past, bringing Tarana Burke’s #MeToo motion to the mainstream and kickstarting conversations about sexual assault, consent, and office harassment.
Starring Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan, the pic is predicated on Kantor and Twohey’s e book of the identical title. Rebecca Lenkiewicz (“Ida”) penned the difference.
“She Stated” is screening in NYFF’s Highlight part. Different titles in this system embody “Until,” Chinonye Chukwu’s biopic of Mamie Until-Mobley, the mom of Emmett Until, and “Ladies Speaking,” Sarah Polley’s drama about girls from a distant Mennonite neighborhood reckoning with the aftermath of a sequence of sexual assaults.
“She Stated” is slated to hit theaters November 18.
NYFF runs September 30-October 16.
