You don’t have to be from the USA to know the most nefarious news network/ Donald Trump mouthpiece is Fox. The ultra conservative media conglomerate are so divisive all largely thanks to one person, Roger Ailes. Jay Roach‘s much anticipated film Bombshell has taken one step closer to release by unearthing the film’s First International Trailer.
The film showcases the story of former Female News anchors who took on Fox. The sexual harassment case against Roger Ailes who created a working environment of male toxicity. Charlize Theron stars as Megan Kelly with Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson and Margot Robbie as Kayla Pospisil. John Lithgow plays Ailes who isn’t in the Trailer.
The timing of this film is perfect, with the rise of #MeToo movement that helped women worldwide come forward. Open up to harassment, prejudice, discrimination in their workplace or business. The story very resonate today, still a long way to go.
The Trailer itself is a hard hitting well made teaser. There is no dialogue at all which first follow Margot Robbie‘s character. Through watching her we get a taster of the uneasy, stressful environment, uncomfortable experience. Tension filled and from a female perspective and a great cast.
