Jane (Julia Garner), an assistant to a powerful movie executive is concerned about the toxic environment of underlying harassment and abuse that is clearly ingrained and accepted within all aspects of the company. This plausible, unsettling tale, written and directed by Kitty Green (known for documentaries including Casting JonBenet) follows Jane during a single day in the office where we quietly witness continual bad practice and her ongoing frustration. Matthew Macfadyen shines as an oily HR Manager and the film's simmering narrative builds a picture of a world that even in the post-Weinstein world is still rife in the workplace.

Welcome to the Film and TV Society’s regular Thursday screening for the 2020/21 academic year! Discussion will follow each film over zoom, a great space for discussing your ideas. Alternatively, treat the discussion like a podcast and just sit back to listen to other students’ thoughts.
The stream will begin a few minutes before the start of the screening.
